It is well recognised that a prompt return to work assists promote recovery. Rehabilitation is the process of facilitating an injured workers return to work by liaising between the treating professionals, the employer and the managing agent. The workplace rehabilitation provider (WRP) assists in identifying employment opportunities, beginning with suitable duties, which the worker can conduct during recovery. These duties allow the worker to continue to contribute to the business and stay engaged with fellow workers. Where injury prevents a worker from returning to their preinjury role IOH is well equipped to assist with redeployment.
