My rants are plenty in regard to the WorkCover system and my efforts to express the limitations and lack of support I’ve experienced as an injured worker for almost 7 years have been endless. All efforts have led to the usual dead-end letter from a WorkSafe Agent, Government body, WorkSafe themselves, if not the dead silence and ignorance that’s on offer for most workers’ concerns.
I was ecstatic when I heard about Kris Vanston and The Scheme Project. and I offered to jump on board and help in any way I could. Theo and I have signed the petition and have both made our pledges. Recently we took our support one step further and spoke up in front of the cameras for The Scheme Project’s Pozible campaign promo.
WorkSafe’s mission statement is, ‘…quality care and insurance protection to workers and employers’. From my experience, that couldn’t be furthest from the truth.
Please show your support by signing, pledging and sharing this video. It’s in every worker’s and employer’s best interest that the WorkCover system is updated and the myth that ‘injured workers wrought the system’ is finally buried.
Help expose the truth, demand a better system.
Conspiracies could include any misleading, restricted or contradicted information that stems from the government, worksafe or it’s insurers, some of them are as follows:
Is there really a compensation culture in this country?
What is the suicide rate of people under the Workcover system?
Are the independent doctors employed by the system really independent?
Why has the mass media somewhat neglected this issue as a whole?
Why does the system allow insurers to use ‘delay and deny’ strategies?
Why does the system promote an injury management model rather than a progressive therapeutic system?
Some of the stories that will be exposed:
A story where an injured worker’s insurer put them on suicide watch, rather than pay for their medical expenses.
Stories about insurers who spend more money to restrict injured workers from medical treatments or expense.
Insurance companies using loopholes, technicalities and bullying behaviour to deny innocent working Australians of medical treatment
Professional opinions from the medical industry about how the system itself causes secondary injuries.
