November 15 - 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm


This blended program is designed to equip people leaders with the knowledge and skills to be proactive in the return to work process, identify suitable duties, and support and monitor worker progress.

Managers and supervisors will also learn how to develop and document a graduated return to work plan over a set period and monitor progress.  This session will incorporate a case study where managers will work through the return to work process and complete a return to work plan.

  • Role summary- Return to Work Matters
  • Clarify legislative overlay and the importance of supervisor and manager involvement in the process
  • Preparing for return to work and the steps involved in identifying suitable duties
  • Essential communication skills when dealing with injured workers, including monitoring and supporting them on suitable duties
  • Steps involved in creating a return to work plan
  • How to apply a best practice return to work approach that achieves a safe and sustainable return to pre-injury duties
