As an employer, you know that accidents—no matter how much we try to prevent them—can happen. Even the best safety programs, procedures, and PPE can’t ward off all accidents.
Unfortunately, accidents tend to have a ripple effect across jobsites. Not only do you have a worker dealing with the stress and pain of an injury, but you may deal with a dip in morale, more questions than answers, and of course, issues regarding Workers’ Comp and returning to work.
But what if you didn’t have to worry as much about the repercussions from accidents? With temporary workers from LaborWorks, you can breathe a little easier, thanks to our Return-to-Work program.
What is the Return-to-Work program?
Because we know that accidents can happen, and that the consequences can be severe for both worker and employer, we created the Return-to-Work program to help all parties involved. When you hire a temporary worker from LaborWorks, the worker—and by extension, you—are covered under the program, which:
- Ensures that the injured employee is provided quality, immediate medical care to address, treat, and heal the injury as quickly as possible
- Gives the injured employee the opportunity to keep working without experiencing injury-related difficulties
It has been proven that workers heal faster when they have a program designed to help them return to work.
How do they return to work?
When we can, we try to provide the worker with a modified work assignment at your worksite. But if your business cannot accommodate this, modified work may be performed at one of our branches. That’s the best part of the program—the ability for the individual to continue working so they don’t experience the hardships of being both injured and unemployed. By supporting the worker, we help him or her stay connected to the workforce, lower stress, and heal faster.
In a nutshell, the LaborWorks Return-to-Work program provides injured workers with:
- Regular pay to meet financial obligations
- Ability to perform productive work and contribute to LaborWorks
- Opportunity to learn new skills
- Positive self-image that comes from work
