Return to work

If one of your employees is injured on the job, they may require a return-to-work program when they are ready to return to the job. As a small business, you may have more challenges to find suitable and available work to offer.

Return-tor-work programs are designed with the idea that many employees can safely perform alternate or modified work during their recovery.

A return to work program will:

  • Help employees return to work in a safe and timely manner
  • Reduce costs to train a replacement worker
  • Reduce the length of time that your employee is away due to their injury
  • Help employees to stay connected to their co-workers and supervisors

Focus on your worker's capabilities when designing a return-to-work strategy. The employee's medical team can identify any limitations that the worker may have in returning to work. Understand what your work can, and cannot, safely do.
