Standard return to work program

A return to work program documents the employer's policies and procedures for managing workers who suffer a work-related injury or illness.

All employers must have a return to work (RTW) program in place within 12 months of becoming a category two employer.

Establishing a RTW program doesn't need to be complicated. The SIRA standard return to work program for Category 2 employers can be adopted or customised for your workplace.
