KINNECT’s tertiary qualified clinicians are experienced in the delivery of these Work Site Assessments and the development of Suitable Duties Plans.

These requirements including an opinion regarding the likelihood of a successful return to work, potential barriers that may adversely impact a positive outcome being achieved and recommendations regarding future rehabilitation needs can be documented in a formal report, providing guidance to you and your workplace.
Furthermore, the information gathered during the assessment can be used to develop a suitable duties program, a graduated work program (detailing duties and hours) that assists injured workers improve their functional capacity with the goal of the worker returning to their pre-injury duties. This program combined with appropriate monitoring from either KINNECT or the workplace can ensure that both the injured worker and the workplace achieve a long term successful return to work.
