Can you answer any of the following questions with confidence?

The Principles of Return to Work

The principles upon which an effective return to work programmes must be based are not very different from those required for the success of any new work-based health policy initiative. The following are some principles which are considered important in most good practice organisations:

  • Early Intervention
  • Worker Involvement
  • Boardroom and Management Commitment
  • Integrated Policy Based Approach Platform (e.g. OSH, WHP, HR, Non-Discrimination)
  • Clear Responsibility and Accountability
  • Customised and flexible responses
  • Properly Resourced

Based on the above how would you rate your level of knowledge on a scale of 1 to 10? Where 1 indicates ‘This is new to me’ and 10 represents ‘I am very familiar with this description of good practice’
