Occupational Health News from Corporate Health

23 Oct

Dame Carol Black highlighted in a recent talk to HR professionals ‘The current culture results in an individual easily being signed off work and very easily slipping away further and further from the labour market. The chances of bringing a person back to work reduce with time and after 20 weeks the likelihood of return has fallen to just 15%’ this is one of the reasons I believe in early and consistent intervention, so many managers leave referring into Occupational Health until it is too late, better outcomes for all are achieved when we still have a chance of helping the employee back to work. What do you think? TOP TIP: refer them in early and start the journey before its too late.
