Rehabilitation programs are designed to ensure a safe plan of returning employees back to their normal role following absence.
There is a legal requirement under the Equality Act to make reasonable adjustments (you do not have to make a role, but must assess all the company) to support an employee with certain medical conditions to return to work in a safe manner. Also under the Health and Safety at Work Act companies have a Duty of Care to ensure employees health is not affected by the work they carry out.
A rehabilitation program usually lasts around 6-8 weeks and can include:
- Reduce hours building up slowly to normal contractual hours
- Reduce work activities such as, no working at heights, not lifting, no repetitive tasks
- Temporary or permanent restrictions
- Job redeployment advice
Typically a rehabilitation program with start with a management referral. Call or contact us to find out more or to book your management referral to begin rehabilitation for one of your employees.
