OUR RETURN TO WORK PROTOCOLS

Return to work protocols are an important element of costs control for an employer facing occupational injuries.

For that reason, a process of effective claims management must be clear, direct and assertive for an effective return-to-work.

In general, the employer will have at its disposal a bank of R.T.W. assignments, and these offers provide a modified work adapted to the condition of your injured worker.

There is a clear understanding in the industry that a reduced number of days lost will significantly reduce the inherent costs associated with your C.N.E.S.S.T. experience.

In our discussions with potential clients, we often hear:

. "We already have a R.T.W. policy».
. "We already administer a modified duties program».

We believe that these two comments raise the following question:

. "Why do I need the professional services provided by Consulting Associates WHS Inc.?"

In general, employers are implementing a R.T.W. process and an offer on modified duties within their operations.

Inside their management, there is an understanding that early return to work of injured workers compensated by the C.N.E.S.S.T. due to limited loss time result in cost savings over their claims with the C.N.E.S.S.T.

The basic application of a return to work protocol examines the effect of an accident at work and on the creation of a R.T.W. plan with tasks that do not exacerbate the injury and will allow the injured worker to progress in his rehabilitation so he can return to his pre-injury functions as quickly as possible.

Most employers are effective with the first part: "creating a return to work program with functions that do not cause harm to the injured worker". However, there is a great advantage to the second part that should not be overlooked: "allow the injured worker to recover fully, and in that matter, we help in returning him to its pre-injured functions safely and within a reasonable time".
