A Workplace injury, why you might need on-demand suitable duties plans

I had the unique opportunity to travel the world with Cirque Du Soleil as a Physiotherapist, and during my adventures, I gained insight into how different countries manage injuries in the workplace. While some healthcare systems impressed me, others left me feeling uneasy when I had to entrust the care of our million-dollar circus performers to local doctors.

I am James Fletcher and here is our take on why you need help with your suitable duties programs.

Why you need help with Suitable Duties

Everything is changing, all the time in modern workplaces. Ensuring the well-being of employees has become a top priority for employers, for good reasons. When it comes to managing workplace injuries and facilitating a smooth return to work, the concept of a “suitable duties plan” is crucial. However, many employers find themselves grappling with the complexity of creating effective plans, often leading to unnecessary time off at Doctors offices and a sense of losing control. 

The Challenge of Suitable Duties Plans

Crafting a suitable duties plan is no walk in the park. Employers often find themselves entangled in a web of conversations, medical nuances, and administrative hurdles.


What is a spondylolisthesis…………. and how can I best help my staff member?



This is often what our clients say to us, “we don’t know how to best help someone who is injured and at work”. The current process often consumes precious time and results in employees taking extended, unnecessary leave. Moreover, the constant juggling of paperwork and communication can leave employers feeling overwhelmed, hindering the rehabilitation process.

The Time-Consuming Struggle

Traditional approaches to creating suitable duties plans are not only time-consuming but also demand extensive expertise in both rehabilitation and administrative tasks. So today, you might take a staff member to the Doctors office only to be told the solution is time off and come back in 2 weeks. Leaving you with paperwork and extra work to cover. This does not help anyone and with the latest research at its actually harmful to all involved.
