About the Webinar
Determining suitable work for an employee coming back from injury can feel like tiptoeing through a virtual minefield. This session will outline the challenges associated with achieving successful Return to Work outcomes when dealing with complex physical and cognitive impairments, as well as some common missteps that occur throughout the Return to Work process. Using case studies including cases of concussions and chronic pain, participants will be provided with methods for avoiding common pitfalls, determining whether a job match exists, and how to implement ergonomic strategies to improve the odds of a safe and sustainable Return to Work. We will wrap-up by discussing how you can be proactive, rather than reactive, while job matching to save time and resources.
