Changes in SA motor accident scheme/news from the ISCRR (what is that?)

June 27, 2013

The South Australian government has changed the motor accidents scheme that was compulsory third party and is now more a no fault scheme. As part of the changes there will be payment of impairment benefits. It has been decided to use the GEPIC rather than the PIRS! Concern was expressed that the PIRS was simplistic, not focused on symptoms of impaired mental health and was inequitable. A training program will be developed. I have provided a link to  the ISCRR, I have mentioned this organisation in a previous post. This organisation is a combined initiative of the Victorian TAC and WorkSafe and is funded to do research and accident and work issues. In this issue there is an article about workplace prevention of mental health problems. It is worth a read.
