2.6 S124 Application of Act to Pre-existing Injuries
Section 124 SRCA allows for injuries that occurred before the commencement of the SRCA to be compensated under the SRCA where they would have been compensable under the Act that was in force at the time of the injury (that is, the 1930 Act or the 1971 Act). The compensation to be granted is the amount that would have been payable under the Act that was in force at the time. No compensation is to be paid under the SRCA for impairment that was already compensated under a previous Act.
More information in relation to assessment of 1930 and 1971 Act permanent impairment can be found in Chapters 7 to 9 of this Manual.
