Frequently asked questions

What is occupational rehabilitation?

Occupational rehabilitation is the process of assisting a worker’s return to work following injury or illness.

An occupational rehabilitation program supports the cognitive and physical needs of this worker, while focusing on their capacity to carry out daily duties both productively and safely.

As a workplace rehabilitation provider, HumanRehab offers specialist, tailored services in close consultation with employers, workers and insurers facing this complex situation.

What is workplace injury management?

Workplace injury management is a systematic process led by an employer and/or their human resources team. It aims to minimise the detrimental impact of injury or illness on an individual’s ability to return to and function in the workplace.

This program is designed to:

  • Reduce absenteeism by fostering ongoing employment opportunities
  • Manage Workers’ Compensation and control injury-related expenses for an employer

What is an injury management plan?

An Injury Management Plan (IMP) details all actions required to facilitate an injured worker’s return to work and accomplishment of agreed goals.

Your case officer will work closely with all relevant parties to develop this plan, which also confirms any responsibilities and duties of the employer, employee and treating doctor.

Does a company in a non-manual industry need an injury management plan?

While manual labour is certainly a high-risk physical activity, many repetitive actions performed by sedentary workers can also lead to long-term health issues.

With Australian employees spending 76% of their working day seated, it’s important to be aware of risks such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and musculoskeletal disorders.

As a result, we recommend the implementation of injury management and rehabilitation solutions to businesses in all industries.
