SISA is supporting a RTW Fund retraining pilot project being conducted by SA Unions. The project managers are looking for volunteers for a pilot project to retrain injured workers for full employment in real jobs.
The pilot project will examine how best to return injured workers to meaningful employment through the provision of relevant training within an overarching rehabilitation program. It will work with fifty workers in the Health & Community Services and Manufacturing sectors over a 15 month period (in metropolitan Adelaide and a regional centre, possibly Whyalla). Consideration will extend to how an ongoing system can be established that embeds retraining as part of the rehabilitation and return to work processes in all industries.
If any SISA members have injured workers who might benefit from this project, please contact either:
Carole on 8279 2280, 0457 837 228
Barbara on 8279 2252, 0457 835 037
This initiative is being funded by WorkCoverSA
as part of the Return to Work Fund.
