On average, 62% of workplace injuries can be effectively triaged over the phone by Registered Nurses. This has been achieved by capturing several thousand injury reports, on behalf of organisations in Aviation, Telecommunications, Banking, Manufacturing, Retail and Health Services.

The Injury Assist Nurse Triage Service provides a 24×7 point of contact point for all  injuries and incidents, from basic first aid calls through to more serious cases. The program is underpinned by DHS’ innovative Tele-health delivery model, and provides a cost effective, Pre-Claim safety net, reassurance and peace of mind for front line employees and management.
