A Better Recovery with a Safe Return to Work Plan Video 1

This video is from our 2016 Return to Work campaign that explains how you can have a better recovery with a safe Return to Work Plan.
(Speaker): After an injury, you may heal faster with a safe return to work plan, rather than not working at all. (Dr. Sarvesh Logsetty, Health Sciences Centre): Rest isn’t always best. Modified work, gradually introduced, can help you get better. (Speaker): The WCB works with you, your doctor and your employer to help you get back to health and meaningful work. Ask your employer about return to work plans.

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 safe and suitable work is an important part of recovery that can help workers:

A Better Recovery With a Safe Return to Work Plan

Recovering from a workplace injury or illness can be difficult for both workers and employers.

You’re concerned about your worker’s wellbeing, as well as covering the gap in staffing and worrying about increased costs. Developing a good Return to Work Program can relieve some of this stress and be good for your business.

A Return to Work Program provides a valuable return on investment. It can reduce your WCB premiums, improve employee morale, lead to faster recovery, provide opportunities for cross-training and enhance employee retention.
