RETURN TO WORK SUPPORT SERVICES (RTWSS)
Return to Work Support Services provides the following four components, each available as a stand alone service or in any combination:
Job Site Visit
The JSV may include any of the following: Brief review of work tasks, confirmation of the worker’s critical job demands, exploration of simple job modifications and return to work options, consultation with relevant stakeholders to establish an appropriate return to work plan; or ongoing support of the graduated return to work plan, including job coaching.
Graduated Return to Work Plan
The GRTW Plan is developed with the participation of the injured worker, the employer, the attending physician, the WorkSafeBC officer and other relevant stakeholders. It will contain specific hours, duties and a defined end date.
This service ensures that a Graduated Return to Work Plan is fully implemented with appropriate support provided as needed. Graduated Return to Work Monitoring provides a minimum of weekly communication with all of the relevant stakeholders and revision of the Graduated Return to Work Plan if warranted.
