On 11 April 2019 the Australian Government assumed a caretaker role, with an election to be held 18 May 2019.
Information on websites maintained by Comcare will be published in accordance with the Guidance on Caretaker Conventions until after the election and conclusion of the caretaker period.



At Comcare, we are committed to improving the health and safety of workers in Commonwealth agencies and within private organisations that operate under the Comcare scheme. Workers are at the centre of everything do at Comcare, because we want to make sure they return safely to their families, friends and communities, everyday.

If a worker is injured, we help with recovery and support. We aim to deliver a compensation scheme that is sustainable, fair, reliable and high-performing.

How we work

To make our scheme the best it can be, we not only put people at the heart of what we do, we actively ask for their feedback. Public consultations are an important part of improving the Comcare scheme and we encourage feedback from customers and stakeholders. We do this by publishing draft documents on the Comcare website, clearly stating the documents name and consultation period.
