Now in their fifth year, the awards celebrate injured workers who have proudly achieved their return to work goals, case managers who care, employers committed to positive return to work culture, health providers that innovate, and rehabilitation coordinators who go the extra mile.

"Through the Awards program, the many passionate and dedicated individuals and businesses who work in this dynamic industry are given an opportunity to shine and share their achievements and innovations with colleagues” Q-COMP CEO Elizabeth Woods said.

“In 2012 we were inspired by more than 350 nominations, sharing their wealth of knowledge, experience and insights into what it takes to get an injured worker back to work safely and successfully.”

“Nominating an individual or organisation is quick and easy at qcompconference.com.au, and I urge Queenslanders to take a moment to thank those who are truly making a difference in rehabilitation and return to work” she said.

Winners of the Return to work Awards 2013 receive up to $2,000 in prize money, while every nominee receives a certificate celebrating their hard work.

The Return to work Awards are held at a ceremony on 30 October 2013, following the Return to work Conference and Expo, a must-attend event for anyone on the front line of rehabilitaiton and reuturn to work.

The nomination period for the Return to work Awards close 14 June 2013 and nominations can be made online at qcompconference.com.au.
