What is Injury Management?

Injury management is a term that is used to describe a coordinated effort to prevent, evaluate and treat workplace injuries and manage compensation claims. Injury management programs for injured workers are designed to reduce the number and severity of workplace injuries.

They may also be referred to as ‘occupational injury and illness prevention programs.’ The goal of injury management is to reduce the number of workplace injuries and illnesses, as well as the costs associated with these conditions.

There are many different approaches to injury management programs however, they typically involve workers’ compensation representatives, health care professionals, doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and psychologists.

Return to Work Programs

A return to work program is a good way to get an injured worker to remain at work, manage workplace injuries and commence suitable duties.

Injury Management Flowchart

A return to work program can be implemented where a worker’s treating medical practitioner:

  • Advises in writing that a return to work program should be established for the injured employee.
  • Signs a medical certificate indicating that the worker has partial capacity to return to work.
  • Signs a medical certificate indicating that the worker has the total capacity to return to work but, for some reason they are unable to return to the position they held immediately before the injury occurred.

The main benefits of having a return to work program include:

  • Maintaining a return to meaningful work focus for the worker.
  • Retention of the skills, knowledge and experience of the worker.
  • Prevention of the worker feeling isolated from the workplace.
  • Assisting in the injury management process and worker’s recovery to pre-injury levels.

Usually, the employee’s direct manager is responsible for monitoring a return to work program, specifically the injured worker’s general performance and ability to perform assigned duties when they return to the workplace.
