Return to Work and Reintegration -
B. Specific Return-to-work Principles and Guidelines

The board, management, policy-makers and return-to-work professional play crucial roles in the setting up and operation of a return-to-work system.

The guidelines should be followed using a “top-down” approach which encourages ownership of their inherent values so that they are simultaneously accepted throughout the organization. The remaining guidelines are based on the following seven principles of return-to-work policy and programmes:

  • Holistic process;
  • Early intervention;
  • Individualized approach;
  • Active participation of the individual;
  • Collaboration;
  • Qualification of experts;
  • Monitoring and evaluation.
