Transitional Work Programs - Good for the Employee-Good for the Company
The steering committee for the Lake County Safety Council is proud to present the August virtual/webinar program --- Back to the Basics - How Transitional Work is Fundamental to Your Safety Program - with keynote speaker Shanna Dunbar, BSN, RN, COHN-S, President of Workplace Health, Inc.
The program is from 9 to 10 a.m. on Thursday, August 12, 2021. This training event is provided to you by the LCSC steering committee.
The presentation will cover critical items concerning the importance of return to work programs and grant opportunities to facilitate that process.
Returning workers safely back to work is one of the foundational principles used in occupational health and safety. And right now with grants available to assist any size company with program development (or the refresh of an existing program) this is an opportunity which companies should not miss.
Dunbar is a registered nurse, board certified in occupational health nursing with more than 30 years of experience. She has been a BWC cetrified transitional work developer since 2001.
With the upcoming BWC re-funding of the Transititional Work Program Grants, now is the time to act.
Finding modified work or "light duty" for an employee who has work restrictions can be a difficult task. But providing an injured worker with job activities as they rehabilitate is not only good for the employee, but good for the business as well.
Dunbar holds a certificate in Workers Compensation Administration and Management from the University of California, and her educational preparation at UCLA in Kinesiology brings a particular expertise in ergonomics and job analysis. She has worked with employers in occupational health since 1986.
