The role of a Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinator (RRWC) is to help colleagues return to their job after an illness or injury.
Rehabilitation is a step-by-step process, allowing injured employees the opportunity to return to work as early as possible. Open and timely communication between the injured employee and the RRWC allows for a smoother process and better overall outcomes for the employee’s health and recovery.
A RRWC will be assigned to your case and assist in your rehabilitation. Your RRWC can help with filing medical certificates, communicating with your Injury Management Advisor (if needed), being a point of contact between you and your workplace, and assist in finding suitable duties (if required).
Your Injury Management Advisors will allocate you a RRWC.
