Return to Work Medicals help reduce occupational health costsA return-to-work assessment helps to identify or confirm if a worker has health limitations that might affect their ability to work without harming themselves or others if they return to the workplace.

Typically, employers do return-to-work or RTW medicals to ensure that employees have recovered from an injury (workplace or otherwise) that required them to miss time off work.   Why do these assessments?

  • so that a worker can be assigned to a position for which he or she is more suitable,
  • so that a job can be modified to provide safe work for the worker while protecting the interests of the organization.
  • to minimize the possibility that a worker will be re-injured or aggravate an unhealed injury
  • to minimize the costs of worker's compensation in case of a re-injury or aggravation

Employers may also be able to obtain relief from the WSIB or Workers Compensation second-injury fund should an employee have pre-existing conditions.

  • provide medical opinions and the required 'fit letters'
