Workers’ compensation schemes in Australia are described as “no fault” schemes.  This means that there is no requirement for a worker to prove that their employer was negligent or, at fault, to be entitled to compensation.  

Generally, a worker will be entitled to compensation if an injury or illness occurs out of or in the course of employment. In the case of injuries or illnesses that develop over a period of time, consideration is given to whether the injury or illness is consistent with the type of work undertaken.
