Key steps

Communicate

Regular communication between an injured worker, their employer and their doctor from early on can help to ensure a smooth return to work.




Set a date

Setting a date to get back to work is important - the date an injured worker expects to be able to return to work after an injury has a big impact on when they’ll actually get back.



Alternate duties

It’s important to stay positive when planning a return to work. Injured workers – with their employer and their doctor - should focus on what they can do, rather than on what they can’t and discuss options for safe alternative duties during recovery.
