Injury Management

At Employmenthealth, our primary focus is on urgent injury management, rehabilitation and safe return to work strategies, all designed to assist the employer and injured worker for a safe and timely return to the workplace. Our key processes include critical and ongoing treatment services, an injury management program and a return to work program.

Accelerated return to work programs have shown to improve the outcome of further ongoing issues that may arise since the initial injury. Getting back to work can reduce the financial and emotional impact on a worker and their family and can be an important factor in helping them recover and return to a normal life again. Employmenthealth will work with the employer and injured worker to implement a suitable return to work program for everyone involved. Generally speaking, usually a few minor changes can make all the difference, adjustments to working hours or the performance requirements of a job might be all that is required to make a positive impact for the injured worker and for the employer.
