Setting your worker’s recover at work goal
Recover at work simply means helping a worker to stay in the workplace in some way following an injury, so they can use work to build and improve their capacity.
When identifying suitable work options for your worker, the goal of returning your worker to the same job as at the time of injury is preferable. Sometimes, due to the nature of the injury or other circumstances this is not possible. In these situations, the goal reflecting the most direct path back to work is recommended. When you set your goal, take into consideration the doctor’s estimation of your worker’s capacity for work. You can find this information in the NSW workers compensation certificate of capacity.
