Alex Drummond – Transport Accident Commission (TAC)
The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and WorkSafe Victoria are Victorian Government owned organisations.
The TAC’s role is to promote road safety, improve the state’s trauma system and support those who have been injured on our roads. The TAC is a no-fault scheme which covers transport accidents and can provide support services for people injured in a transport accident.
WorkSafe Victoria’s responsibilities are to help avoid workplace injuries occurring, enforce Victoria’s occupational health and safety laws, provide reasonably priced workplace injury insurance for employers, help injured workers back into the workforce and manage the Victorian workers’ compensation scheme.
This submission aims to provide an overview of the context of TAC and WorkSafe Victoria and address key areas of the New Disability Employment Services discussion paper that are most relevant to the TAC and/or WorkSafe. The submission offers shared learnings and specific ideas in response to the discussion paper based on known synergies across government departments. Please find attached.
