Planning for your return

Talk with your occupational health service or GP to work out when and how are best for you to return to work.

Depending on the nature of your job, you might want to ask your employer about returning to work on safer duties at first. This means:

  • avoiding exposure to liquids or dust during the first four weeks.
  • ensuring you meet the occupational visual requirements for driving and equivalent duties such as operating forklift trucks, cranes and other heavy machinery.

If you have an HR Department at work, they will be able to advise you regarding sick pay or any other benefit you may be entitled to during your time off. Alternatively, talk directly with your employer.

3 Golden rules for a speedy recovery:

  • Stay active.
  • Keep a normal daily routine.
  • Keep social contact with people.

Confidence

It will take you a little while to regain your full confidence when you go back to work. You may be slower than normal at first, so don’t take on too much responsibility too soon. Don’t be too hard on yourself about this - it’s perfectly normal and you’ll start to get back up to speed after a few days.
