You will require this approval if you intend to offer occupational rehabilitation services to workers' compensation recipients in order to help them return to work. As a rehabilitation provider you may:
- assess the needs of the injured worker and the workplace requirements, to develop a rehabilitation plan of action, listing the services needed to return the injured worker to work
- employ different health professionals, such as occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists and rehabilitation counsellors
- be referred to by an employer, insurer or the treating doctor to help in complex cases
- be involved in the return-to-work program.
