Recover @ Work

WorkCover NSW has relaunched Return to Work as Recover at Work. WorkCover posit that this is more than just semantics, with the change in wording being an important highlighter that an injury does not mean time of work is necessary. This promotes that in most instances (greater than 80%) recovery at work garners better outcomes. It reinforces the message that work is therapeutic, improves recovery time, reduces pain symptoms and helps workers return to their usual activities sooner.

With this WorkCover NSW has launched a new Recover at Work Planning Tool:
