Return to work programs
When injury does occur the medical management program should be able to provide initial treatment, rehabilitation and aid in the process of returning the worker to a job that he/she is physically capable of performing.
Return to work programs not only greatly reduce disability costs, they also ensure a safe and graduated re-integration in the workplace. An effective return to work program will balance the well-being of employees while maintaining an efficient and competitive operation. We have designed numerous programs with an average return on investment of less than a year. Our programs comply with all obligations relating to accommodation of disabled employees.
We help you develop individualized highly structured and goal oriented work hardening programs to return an employee to work after and injury. Our work hardening programs are implemented to restore physical functions and address productivity, safety, physical tolerances and worker behavior issues.
This individualized program is meant to gradually improve a workers ability to conduct employment related demands. We do this by working with:
- Physical therapist
- Occupational therapists
- Certified occupational therapy assistants
- Rehabilitation physicians
- Vocational counselors
- Psychologists, and more…
