Return to Work Plus is a passion project born from a vision to give country employers and injured workers the same access to return to work services as their city counterparts.
With a background in Occupational Rehabilitation Counselling and having worked as a Return to Work Coordinator in the country for many years, I noticed that in order to get great service, up to date information and maintain successful outcomes, a lot of travel to the city was required. So, out of one-part frustration, one-part curiosity and many parts passion, Return to Work Plus was born.
Being based in North West Victoria, my original intention was to service employers and injured workers based in the Wimmera, Mallee and Sunraysia by bringing information and great service to these areas through work site visits, consultations, Occupational Rehabilitation and Return to Work training.
I am now super excited to announce that Return to Work Plus has been working extremely hard with a great team to put our WorkSafe accredited ‘Role of the Return to Work Coordinator’ course online.
This fantastic course will benefit Return to Work Coordinators, payroll officers, HR & OHS personnel, supervisors, even employers. It will give you up to date information on:
- Your role as a Return to Work Coordinator
- Putting effective return to work strategies in place following a workplace injury
- Assisting your employer to effectively support the injured worker through their return to work journey
- Proactively responding to workplace injuries, and
- How to effectively communicate with all key parties involved in the return to work process.
Upon completion of this online course you will have the confidence to effectively undertake all aspects of your role as a Return to Work Coordinator, all without having to travel to the city.
We will be launching in the next couple of weeks, so to ensure you stay up to date with course dates and to take advantage of our Early Bird special, go to www.returntoworkplus.com.au and subscribe to our monthly newsletter
I look forward to seeing you all there.
