At the core of SafeWorks Illinois is industrial rehabilitation … pulling together services and conditioning the employee to get them back on their feet in a quick and timely manner, while focusing on preventing re-injury.
It has been well documented that the longer an injured employee remains off work following an injury, the greater the chances are that they will not return to work. Our approach to industrial rehabilitation is extremely focused and our expert staff uses cutting-edge technology that provides excellent documentation for the legal system to positively affect a safe and efficient return to work.
