Coronavirus  COVID-19

TAVRP, as the Peak Body representing Workplace Rehabilitation Providers (WRP) in Tasmania, is committed to help inform best practice for providersengaged in workplace injury prevention and management including return to work processes during this Pandemic.

WRPs can reduce potential impacts by conducting as much client and medical practitioners contact as possible by phone or  telehealth platforms, and adhering to social distancing recommendations. There are many avenues through which general advice to assist with minimising risk of spread of COVID-19 is being provided. WRPs are urged to comply with this advice.

TAVRP acknowledges the huge effort being undertaken by so many to protect the wider community.

Specific to workplaces and especially to our injured workers participating in a return to work program, normal proceedings are likely to be interrupted by the recommended procedures of social distancing, and closures of non essential services,  and many providers will  find their own work, and that of their clients, subject to changed circumstances.

In addition to current advice being provided to the community as a whole,
