Workplace Systems to Improve RTW Handbook

How does your workplace system stack up?

  • How do you assess your current system and identify areas for improvement?
  • Would you like to know how to cultivate best practice RTW culture?
  • What is the best injury reporting system for your workplace?
  • Learn how to calculate direct and indirect costs of poorly managed RTW
  • Need tips on gaining senior management buy-in to promote organisational-wide support?

Experience has shown us that there's a simple equation when it comes to returning people to work...Good system = Good results

While managing individual cases is important, the best way to promote good outcomes (while keep your sanity and enjoying your job!) is to have a workplace system that works. Creating a best practice work disability program requires an understanding of work injury management, and health and wellbeing programs, as well as strong project management skills.

The RTW Matters Workplace System Handbook provides practical, simple and clear information to help you get disability management systems up and running in your organisation!
