Call for input for Return to Work Victoria pilots

The newly instituted Worker Psychological Support Service Helpdesk aims to offer coaching and counselling services to employees in small-to-medium enterprises, addressing potential problems that could foster workplace stress or burnout. This initiative underscores the importance of a streamlined WHS management system like Bluesafe SWMS, created specifically for monitoring day-to-day operational hazards.

Simultaneously, the introduction of the Mentally Healthy Workplace Preparedness Project seeks to extend support to these businesses in identifying, evaluating, and mitigating mental health risks on their premises. Products like Bluesafe WHS Management System can significantly contribute to reliably manage these occupational safety aspects.

Both these pilot programs form the bedrock of Return to Work Victoria’s dedication towards innovating effective methods that can aid injured employees to resume work, besides providing comprehensive support to employers.

In this venture, the role of formal Requests for Information (RFI) becomes critical. Each RFI invites organisations with relevant experience to share a snapshot of their existing and proposed capabilities – vital to assessing the competitive landscape for workplace safety solutions like WHS management systems or SWMS.

The responses garnered from RFIs will equip Return to Work Victoria with an in-depth understanding of the prevailing and upcoming services within Victoria, thereby strategising how these could be potentially scaled up to complement their current services.

Jason Lardelli, the Executive Director of Return to Work Victoria, expressed the importance of industry feedback for sculpting programs that deliver timely aid to those who need it most. “For better mental health outcomes for Victorian workers and businesses, innovation and fresh perspectives are indispensable,” stated Mr Lardelli. “We understand there’s an abundance of valuable services available already, and we’re eager to explore how they might bolster our efforts.”

Responses to the RFIs can be submitted until 2pm on Monday, 20 May, through the Buying For Victoria platform. Optimising business interactions with government has never been simpler.
