Light-Duty And Return-To-Work Programs

About This Course:
Successful Strategies To Get And Keep Injured Workers On The Job Safely

Light-duty and return-to-work programs offer many benefits, both for employees and for an organization’s bottom line: they can help an organization lower its direct and indirect workers’ compensation costs, improve employee morale, boost productivity, and much more.

However, to provide these benefits, a return-to-work program must be carefully designed and implemented. A worker who returns too quickly following an injury or illness can be at risk for exacerbating or reinjuring the condition, and employers must balance many different legal obligations under the ADA, OSHA, FMLA, and state workers’ compensation laws.

Designing and maintaining a successful return-to-work program that balances all of these considerations is a challenging task and a pain point for many safety and HR managers.
