Mavis Gibson talks recovery at work

September 17, 2019
A recover-at-work program has huge benefits for injured workers because it reduces the risk of a disability mindset and supports the psychological benefits of working, which include having a routine, feeling productive, and having social connections with co-workers.

A recover-at-work program has huge benefits for injured workers because it reduces the risk of a disability mindset and supports the psychological benefits of working, which include having a routine, feeling productive, and having social connections with co-workers.

We talked with Mavis Gibson, SafeCare BC’s workplace health and safety program director.   

Why is it important for organizations to have a recover-at-work program?
Every organization should have a recover-at-work program to support their staff best. Research shows that injured workers recover faster when they return to work through a recover-at-work program at an appropriate time and with appropriate duties based on the individual’s physical and cognitive abilities.

In addition, there are continuity of care benefits for residents and clients who come to rely on a regular roster of care staff. Having a recover-at-work program can also reduce claims costs, which can free up financial resources that can be invested in more staffing and increased quality of care for residents and clients.

Who should participate in this workshop/webinar?
Employers and supervisors should participate in this workshop. I would also encourage joint occupational health and safety committee members to participate, as there is a strong component in engaging these groups.

What will participants learn?
They will understand the components of designing a recover-at-work program, including knowing where to get their organization’s data and the resources available to them from SafeCare BC and WorkSafeBC. They will also appreciate the value of engaging their joint occupational health and safety committee in designing their program.
