Rehabilitation and Recovery from Accident and Illness
Getting people back to work quickly but safely after injury and illness greatly enhances their recovery, and reduces costs for the employer. Making the return to work safe for the employee and as productive as possible for the employer is the aim.
WOHC’s Occupational Health Nurses are trained in rehabilitation management. They also refer clients to physiotherapists as appropriate. Specialist Occupational Health Physicians have their clinics in WOHC’s premises and can be called upon to give advice if needed.
Rehabilitation management focuses on fostering a collaborative relationship between all parties – aimed at getting the best outcome for the employee and employer.
WOHC’s skills extend to assessing the work tasks, developing return to work plans in consultation with all parties, and providing the monitoring and support needed to achieve rehabilitation goals.
