Return to Work

When a worker is hurt on the job, their life and the lives of their family members are impacted. 

A workplace injury can also disrupt the productivity of any company. 

The impact is reduced when a plan is in place to keep workers safe on the job, and to help them return to work in a safe and timely manner following an injury.
