Step 4: Medical care and work restrictions

If you are temporarily unable to work because of your injury, you need to keep your supervisor informed about your medical condition, and return to work as soon as your physician allows you to do so.

You should have a discussion with your supervisor about the availability of appropriate light-duty assignments during your recovery period. Your supervisor will be responsible for working with you to find duties you can perform within the limitations of your injury.

You must provide your supervisor a copy of the completed blue slip from OMS indicating any medical limitations or restrictions specified.

You are obligated to return to regular duty as soon as you are able to do so, and to avoid activities while on workers' compensation that might aggravate the injury/condition.
