NSW workers compensation certificate of capacity
The certificate of capacity is the primary communication tool of the doctor. It is a standard form that a doctor must complete and replaces the former medical certificate.
Using the recommendations contained in the certificate will help your worker recover at work sooner. You are entitled to ask questions of the doctor and clarify the information in the certificate.
Questions you may ask include:
- what can the worker do?
- how long do you expect the worker to take to return to their normal duties?
- can the worker drive or use public transport?
- what can I do to help the worker recover at work?
- how can I best communicate with you about the worker’s progress?
