MANAGE EMPLOYEE INJURIES & RETURN TO WORK
WHEN AN ILL OR INJURED EMPLOYEE RETURNS TO WORK IN A SAFE AND TIMELY MANNER, EVERYONE WINS.
However, whether an injury or illness is work- or non-work-related, the safe and timely return of an injured or ill employee cannot be taken for granted. If not strategically and deliberately managed, injuries will often be misdiagnosed, expectations regarding when an employee can safely return to work will typically be based on population-based estimates rather than patient data, inefficient scheduling will delay important diagnosis and treatment decisions, and care fragmentation will waste time and money. WorkSTEPS can work with you to determine your return to work strategy; we have the people and processes needed to advocate for your employees throughout the recovery process; and we have the systems and proprietary software needed to do it all consistently and in compliance with the law.
RETURN TO WORK FIT FOR DUTY EXAMS
Before an employee returns to work following an injury, illness, or surgery, you want to assess their capacity to safely perform their job. WorkSTEPS Return to Work Fit for Duty (FFD) testing will inform your dialog with an employee about potential next steps, which may include returning to their job, returning to a different job at least temporarily, and/or undergoing additional rehabilitation.
A Fit-for-Duty evaluation is administered to a current employee post-injury through an injury management program. A Fit-for-Duty Evaluation is a functional capacity test that focuses only on the injured part of the body used in a job specific task, rather than a comprehensive exam. In compliance with EEOC mandates, a medical examination of a current employee may be given only when it is “job related and consistent with business necessity”.
FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY EXAMINATIONS
Return-to-work decisions must be data-driven. WorkSTEPS is a pioneer in using evidence-based, full-body Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE) to inform decision-making throughout an employee’s recovery and return to work process.
