Stay at Work/Return to Work Program
Statistically, we know that the sooner an employee returns to work after an injury or illness, the faster his/her full recovery will be. We have created a Stay at Work/Return to Work Program template to help you with this process.
You will need to customize this program to meet the needs of your organization. In addition to helping you establish an effective program for re-integrating workers into the workplace after an injury or illness, by following this template, your organization should be able to successfully complete the Return-To-Work Certificate of Recognition Program (when you complete the Health & Safety COR Audit as well).
