Initial referrals to a Return-to-Work Specialist within 12 weeks of the date of injury or latest recurrence have decreased slightly to 78 per cent compared to 2016.  

In 2017, 89 per cent of Schedule 1 and 2 injured employees were off full loss-of-earnings benefits within a month of a Return-to-Work Specialist’s involvement.
