Most workplace injuries in Nova Scotia don’t cause a worker to miss time from their job. But it is important that all injuries are reported and that the worker receives first aid or other medical assistance if required. And remember, workers don’t need a referral from a doctor to get an appointment with a physiotherapist.
For your worker who is off with a serious injury, getting back to work means getting back to their regular life. For you, it means getting a valued and productive worker back on the job.
Stay in touch with your worker – keep them connected to the workplace and help them get back on the job as safely as possible.
