Not all injuries result in time away from work. For those that do, more than 70% of workers return within 13 weeks of sustaining their injury. Evidence has shown that the earlier a worker returns, the better their chances of recovery.

For employers, it can help to promote a positive culture, improve attendance and performance and enhance productivity. Similarly, an earlier return also helps to reduce claim and premium costs.
