A Review into the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act was undertaken in 2012 by Mr Peter Hanks QC and Dr Allan Hawke AC, to ensure that its objectives were being met and the Comcare Scheme was exemplary in its design and delivery.
The final report of the Review of the SRC Act was publicly released on 30 March 2013. Mr Hanks' report outlines over 100 recommendations to modernise the SRC Act and to increase the focus on early intervention and rehabilitation for the benefit of injured workers and their employers.
