Workplace rehabilitation aims to deliver support and guidance to injured workers so that they can return to work safely and in a timely manner after an illness or injury. The process involves finding efficient means for the worker to stay engaged and working at the workplace while managing their work skills. Below are few important factors you should know about workplace rehabilitation services:

1. What it’s about

The objective of rehabilitation is to help return workers to the job they had prior to the injury or illness. If they cannot return to their pre-injury job soon after the incident, a specialised program should be developed, so they can return to work safely over a given period of time.

2. What’s involved?

Workplace rehabilitation services may involve a suitable duties program, which could provide temporary modifications or restrictions of the worker’s normal job activities. The aim is to allow the worker to return to their full duties in time. It may encompass up-skilling and on-the-job training to help the worker acquire new skills.

The workplace rehabilitation program is an essential aspect of the services, and it is created in a consultative process where the supervisor, injured worker, WHS injury prevention and management advisor, and treating medical practitioners are involved.

3. Benefits to the worker

Through workplace rehabilitation, workers may recover faster with minimal suffering or difficulty. Disruptions to their working, social, and family life are minimised, and their physical condition may be encouraged when they become more confident to return to work. Workplace rehabilitation services may provide financial and job security, and enable the worker to remain productive, too!

4. Not just for the sake of the worker

Workplace rehabilitation is beneficial to the employer, too. With the right programs, they can help workers deal with injury and return to regular work routines. They can retain skilled workers and control the costs of workplace injury.

5. It needs to be monitored and managed proactively

Effective delivery of workplace rehabilitation services can be simplified with scalable cloud-based case management software, which will help you monitor, review, and assess the progress of actions. It will help you work closely with practitioners and health providers, so it will be easier to manage workers who want to return to work safely and as soon as they can.
