It has become apparent that NSW Ambulance (NSWA) is exhibiting a renewed enthusiasm to supply staff who have suffered non-work related injuries with suitable duties.
NSWA has indicated to us that this will be done on a case by case basis and will depend upon the skill set of the individual in question.
While we encourage this new development from NSWA, we remain sceptical that this treatment will be applied equitably across the organisation.
APA (NSW) would like to encourage members who have suffered non-work related injuries to, in the first instance, contact the employer and request suitable duties.
Depending on the outcome of the request, APA (NSW) would like to hear from members who have had their claims for suitable duties for non-work related injuries denied and the ensuing circumstances.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details.
All matters will be kept strictly confidential.
