Getting back to work is good business

Supporting injured workers in getting back to work makes good business sense. The potential savings from supporting early return to work can help business maintain operational requirements and minimise claim costs that impact on workers’ compensation premiums. The costs associated with hiring additional labour and training new workers can be minimised by making getting back to work a priority.

Getting workers back to work supports the approach outlined in Realising the Health Benefits of Work. This paper highlights the longer someone is off work the less likely they are to return. Providing immediate and ongoing support to your injured workers will assist their recovery, reduce disruption to their personal and work life and reduce negative impacts on your business viability.
