The Supervisor’s Role in Injury Management

Studies indicate that a company’s - in particular a supervisor's - response to a workplace injury is an important influence on the quality and speed of the worker’s recovery and the success or failure of the stay at work or return to work outcome.  

A supervisor’s response may be the single most important influence on whether a worker reintegrates successfully into the workplace following a workplace injury.

The BCCSA offers a comprehensive injury management service designed to assist member companies to (a) help their injured workers stay at work, performing regular or modified duties, or return to safe and meaningful work as soon as possible; and (b) understand and control costs associated with workplace injuries and illnesses.
