Options for Meaningful and Safe Return-to-Work for Non-Occupational Injuries
When an employee is injured it is important for them to return to work as quickly and safely as possible whether they were injured from an occupational or non-occupational incident. Not only does returning to work provide numerous benefits to the employee, it also helps employers keep costs down while retaining valuable talent. Studies show that on a per capita basis the total health and wage replacement benefits paid for a non-occupational condition can be 10 times what the workers’ compensation costs might be. Additionally, by including non-occupational injuries in a return to work program, employers can ensure parity across all lines of disability.
