Guide for Use
If the incident is related to an accident or injury, the location is the place where the accident occurred, or where the injury was sustained. For example, "Logan Rd corner Nursery Rd Mt Gravatt" or "At office on stairs address 12 Edward St, Brisbane city."

If the workers' compensation incident is related to an illness, the incident location is the place where the cause of the illness was located. For example, in a black lung case, the location would be the mine where the patient worked. In a case of conditions related to working with asbestos, the location would be the factory, or listed as "various sites working for [company name]".

If the location is not known, record UNKNOWN. Every effort should be made to determine the location of the incident, and UNKNOWN should only be provided if the location cannot be determined.

Public hospitals that do not use an electronic patient management system will need to complete a Motor and Work Injury Interview Questionnaire and provide this information to the facility that records their data.
Comment
The workers' compensation data elements are required for a patient who is a Queensland worker with a compensable injury or illness who has elected to be treated as a public patient by a doctor nominated by the hospital, and are used to substantiate a hospital's claim for reimbursement for costs of providing treatment to a patient for compensable injuries.
