Good Morning

I have been having similar cases not just for work related injuries but 
all sorts of injuries. During this economic climate people are opting 
to return to work even if this is not advised. I contacted ACASS as I 
was concerned. I was saying the individual was not fit and they still 
wanted to return to work.

I was advised to read the FIT note from the GP if it stated adaptations 
were required then they had the same opinion as myself. If he had not 
written adapations required then they advised me to contact the GP 
directly or refer the employee back to his GP with a letter explaining 
my concerns. ACASS stated that if we both agreed and the employer let 
the individual back to work without adaptations then they would be 
liable if the inury got worse.

At the end of the day it is the employers decision based on the advce 
we have given and so I just ensure that I am happy with the 
recommendations I have made and can stand up in court with confidence 
knowing that I also have the support of the GP when I am not able to 
get further OH support as I work alone.

Hope this helps

Tracy

Hi Tanya,At the end of the day it is the employers decision as to 
whether toprovide modifications. All you can do is advise and leave it 
up to themwhether they take that advice or not. I would ensure that I 
highlightedthe reasons for my recommendations in my report, whether 
furthertraining would facilitate a move to an alternative role and a 
reminderof EA. The employer does have a duty of care to make 
reasonableadjustments and would have to justify why these were not 
feasible inthat particular role and if another role was not appropriate 
due to lackof skills could training be provided?Kind RegardsLesley

Work related Injuries/IllnessHi TaffyMany thanks for your response.  
Iam aware of the fact that there isntmuch one can do from an OH 
perspective at this point but I was justwanting to know more about what 
the employer is obliged to do given thecircumstances.  Perhaps our 
colleagues knowledgeable  in OccupationalHealth law could shed more 
light.RegardsTanya********************************Please remove this
