EML is a mutual organisation, which means we reinvest a percentage of funds into research, initiatives and tools that benefit our employer customers (‘Members’ to us). It’s what makes us a little different from other organisations.
How we reinvest profits for our members
Our Member Benefits team invests funds into a variety of projects both within EML and directly to our members to improve health and safety, and return to work outcomes.
Since 2012, we’ve:
- Provided $73 million in Member Benefits’ funding nationally
- Funded 775 work, health and safety programs
- Delivered more than 100,000 hours of free online courses
As well as our extensive training for members, we also invest in research programs to gain a greater understanding of best practice treatment, prevention and early intervention methods that can benefit injured workers across schemes.
We sponsor relevant organisations that benefit our injured workers. And we provide guidance and support to members to improve their worker health and safety, and return to work rates.
Members Benefits funding is deployed strategically – to develop short and longer-term approaches to helping people get their lives back. We are always thinking ahead – funding the creation and implementation of tools and resources that can benefit all members, for example, our series of First Appointment videos and the development of the PTSD Guidelines.
