Not being able to work as a result of an injury can have a significant impact on an injured person.
Whilst returning to work is not possible for everyone, having time off work, particularly long absences, can affect one’s physical and mental health.
Returning to work post-injury, or in a modified capacity whilst still recovering is an important part of rehabilitation.
The longer a worker is off work due to injury/illness, the less chance they have of returning.
Returning to work can be therapeutic, and helps to aid recovery.
It’s important for the injured employee to remain socially connected whilst in recovery, not to mention the benefits physically and financially of returning to work.
Skilled and considered return to work management of an employee with a work related illness or injury is vital to ensuring a positive outcome is achieved.
