Return To Work and Ergonomics Overview

RESIG’s Return To Work Program

The purpose of the Return to Work Program is to assist you in returning to work quickly and safely. Although you may have temporary work restrictions that might prevent you from performing regular job tasks, you can often participate in temporary modified duty while recovering.

This is how it works: after an initial appointment with the Occupational Health Clinic the treating doctor may release you back to work with temporary work restrictions. An Interactive Process meeting should take place with your employer to determine how to accommodate you. Should you choose to remain off work you will not be paid temporary disability benefits but you may use your own sick time to remain off work. The progress you make will be monitored while participating in The Program.

RESIG’s Ergonomic Program

The purpose of the ergonomics program is to eliminate work-related ergonomic risk factors and prevent or reduce workplace-acquired injuries.

RESIG provides ergonomic assessments to member Districts. There is no cost to you or your district for an
ergonomic evaluation conducted by RESIG. Anyone can request an ergonomic evaluation. Let your supervisor or manager know that you would like to request this service. They will then contact RESIG.

The evaluation or assessment usually begins with a discussion period between yourself and a RESIG Ergonomic Advisor. A hands-on evaluation of your workstation and job duties will take place. A report will be generated and will provide recommendations to reduce any risk factors. The report will be provided to your District Office.
