Register as a service provider


Allied health non board registered providers

For non-board registered allied health providers, the qualifications of the service provider, business registration and insurance coverage must be acceptable to WorkSafe.

To support your application you may be required to provide evidence such as relevant tertiary qualifications, professional experience or membership of a professional association (or evidence of eligibility for membership). WorkSafe will contact you if additional information or clarification is required before processing the application.


Dietitians must:

  • complete the WorkSafe Application for Registration to Provide Services to Workers form
  • provide proof that they are an Accredited Practicing Dietitian if they are not registered with Medicare
  • maintain at all times a minimum of $1 million professional indemnity insurance coverage.

A WorkSafe provider number will be issued for invoicing purposes. For dietitians who are registered with Medicare, their Medicare number(s) will be used as the provider number.

Accredited Practicing Dietitians (APD)

  • An APD is a dietitian who has made a commitment to keeping up-to-date and to maintaining high practice standards.
  • The Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) administers the APD program, supporting and monitoring continuing professional development activity.
  • APDs are bound by the DAA Code of Professional Conduct and Code of Ethics.
  • Only current participants in this program can use the letter 'APD' after their name.
