When a worker is injured at work, it doesn’t always mean they need time off work.
Recent research has shown that work has important health and wellbeing benefits.
Being off work for long periods of time can significantly reduce the likelihood of a worker ever returning to work and can have a negative effect on the worker and their family. It is a crucial step in recovering from a work-related injury.
WorkCover Queensland will discuss why it is important to return to work as quickly as possible and the benefits, as well as guide you through how to support your worker and define suitable duties.
You will also hear from the Office of Industrial Relations on how to be creative with duties, how to be non-judgmental when considering ‘meaningful work’ and how to engage with the GP and work together to create a supportive return to work plan.
