Return to Work Initiatives

Return to Work initiatives are designed to facilitate the return of injured or ill workers and to reduce the risk of an on-site injury or accident.

Return to Work initiatives are derived from employees suffering from injuries or illnesses in the workplace. As a rule, they are covered by their employers’ Workers’ Compensation Insurance for all medical care, medications and rehabilitation. A common problem, after the physician clears the employee (sometimes with work restrictions) to resume work and return back to the workplace, is that the employee returns to the job that contributed to the injury. Return to Work services are designed to facilitate the earliest possible return for injured or ill workers to the workforce and reduce the risk of an on-site injury or accident from occurring again. The staff at the Kornreich Technology Center at The Viscardi Center, can assist employers by:

Developing a work plan for injured or ill workers to return to work to perform meaningful and productive
  job tasks based on their current physical capabilities. This may include the use of assistive technology,
  short and long term work space accommodations and modified duties.

Conducting work task and work environment assessments, including tools and accessories, and providing
  in-depth recommendations on how to improve ergonomics and on-the-job safety in an effort to reduce the
  risk of a work-related injury or accident from occurring or recurring.
