The HSE is committed to the provision of workplace rehabilitation that supports and enables injured or sick employees to remain at or return to the workplace to continue the discharge of work duties. This process benefits both the employee and the employer.
The purpose of this policy is to:
- Describe the commitment the HSE provides to all sick/injured employees.
- Provide guidelines to managers, employees, occupational health departments, rehabilitation professionals, HR departments and employee assistance services on conducting workplace rehabilitation that assists employees affected by both work and non-work related injuries/illnesses to recover and perform duties for which they are employed.
- Support an early and safe return for the employee who has an illness/injury.
