Return-To-Work

“Return to work” programs are initiatives designed to help employees safely resume their duties after an injury or illness that occurred in the workplace. In the context of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), these programs aim to facilitate a smooth transition for workers back into their roles while prioritizing their well-being and ensuring a safe and supportive environment. Return to work programs often involve collaboration between employers, healthcare professionals, and the affected employees to develop tailored plans that accommodate any necessary accommodations or modifications to the job tasks. By gradually reintegrating employees into the workplace, providing necessary support, and addressing any challenges they may face, these programs promote a successful return to work while prioritizing the health and safety of the employee.
