Resources to coordinate return to work
Having suitable duties available is important to support an injured worker's return to work. An injured worker may need to begin with light duties and include more tasks as their capacity for work changes. WorkCover works with all parties, including the treating medical provider, employer and worker to ensure everyone is aware of where the worker is with their rehabilitation and stay at, or return to work.
The below list offers some job task analyses for particular roles to help facilitate and develop a suitable duties program for injured workers.
The return to work checklists can be given to the worker's treating medical practitioner to help them identify opportunities for their patient to return to work safely.
