Key considerations in return to work strategies

 

Guidelines for IMA's and NTD's

 

The key considerations are:

 

  1. Knowledge of what the job demands - specific duties, duration, tolerances needed

  2. What are the tasks required for the job, for example, climbing a ladder, fixing loads, regular vibration, working an a key board all the day

  3. Information from the employer about the minimum requirements for the person to be useful at work in any capacity

  4. Assessment of whether the injured worker can complete any of the tasks outlined above identified by the employer

  5. At times you will need to use a rehabilitation provider to achieve the above – if necessary perform further assessments such as a functional skills assessment

 

 

Key Factors in Any Action Plan

 

 

There are seven key factors concerned with any action plan:

 

  1. Concrete behavioural objectives

  2. Reasonable prospect of success

  3. Worker and employer motivated to participate

  4. It is realistic given available resources

  5. The need to prioritise

  6. Is within defined time frame

  7. There is an agreement reached between the worker and the employer
