Did you know rest isn’t always best when recovering from a workplace injury?
In fact, getting back to work can sometimes do more for a worker’s recovery than being at home.
That’s the message of our brand-new Return to Work campaign, which shows how returning to meaningful and safe work is an important part of recovery that can help workers:
- recover faster
- return more quickly to their normal activities at work and home
- maintain relationships with coworkers
- keep skills sharp
- maintain emotional wellbeing.
Safe Return to Work plans can help workers return to their workplaces sooner, and reduce the number of days workers, workplaces and the province lose to injury and illness. We are here to help all three players in the Return to Work process – workers, employers and healthcare providers – understand and fulfil the roles they play in recovery.
