Workers And Families To Have Their Say On Safety

Any effort to help injured workers and rectify the workers' compensation system is going to meet me with a very stern look of doubt on my face. It's also going to take a great deal of change for me to believe that any Governing body is keen to take action and that they will be able to follow through. It's going to take a great deal of change and support and sadly it won't make up for the trauma and loss suffered in the past. Is it possible that a Government group can swing all the bad it's done (and doing) and transform into a truly supportive system? Can Victorian workers and employers feel confident that if in the case of a work accident, a system that supports injured workers and employers will exist? And where possible will this system be able to find a way to return workers to some form of work? To me, it seems that to land another man on the moon is going to be far more possible.

It’s Official! It’s ok to Treat Injured Workers Immorally and Unethically

No one within the system has fear of prosecution - not even a fear of a single penalty! No one within the system has been or will be called to explain their actions and held to account. This makes my blood boil! I haven't even heard the support will be returned to workers who were delivered unfair decisions and had to walk away from their support. But I want my money back! Where are my years of wages after having a decision overturned unfairly at the Accident Compensation Conciliation Service (ACCS) by the Agent? And the rest...?

If you dress well - this system assumes you couldn't possibly have a health issue. If you speak well, there's no way you have suffered trauma. If you manage to stay alive through your darkest moments, they assume you can forfeit your compensation. When you are honest and remain transparent, they only abuse your information.
