WorkCover has a counselling and liaison Coordinator who can provide information on counselling and other supports available to all close family members when a relative has died or been seriously injured in a workplace incident.
The Coordinator can be contacted on 1800 806 626, or email email@example.com.
WorkCover’s Coordinator Counselling and Liaison can provide updates to next of kin and other family members on the progress of the investigation and any legal action that may be commenced in respect of the incident involving the death of their relative. The Co-ordinator Counselling and Liaison also assists eligible family members or injured persons prepare Victim Impact Statements after a defendant has been convicted but before sentencing.
The Coordinator can also organise referrals to other support services such as NSW State Coroner’s Coronial Information and Support Program (CISP) and other community agencies.
