What is Work Disability?

Simply put, “Work Disability occurs when a worker is unable to stay at work or return to work because of an injury or disease. Work disability is the result of a decision by a worker who for potential physical, psychological, social, administrative, or cultural reasons does not return to work. While the worker may want to return to work, he or she feels incapable of returning to normal working life.” (Handbook of Work Disability – Prevention and Management. Loisel and Anema 2013)

Work Disability is:

  • Tenacious and unforgiving if left on it is own. Overwhelming evidence shows that not working is generally bad for health.

  • The result of delayed recovery factors that can not be solved with more investigation, more medical document, or more expert opinions..

  • Preventable with its own set of interventions.

Unnecessary Work Disability is a sustained decline of the ability of a worker to participate in the workforce either by remaining at work or returning to work as a result of an injury or illness.

“I really cannot thank you enough for making the trip. The workshops were absolutely fabulous and really, exactly what I hoped they would be… inspiring, dynamic, informative but most of all, really thought provoking. The Toolkit is so completely relevant and will be so valuable for staff. I can’t wait to see how applying what we learned changes how we work. I feel sure our outcomes will improve as a result!!”

Kate Marshall, Director Workplace Services, PEI Workers' Compensation Board

“Completely different approach to Disability Management for me.  Would recommend this workshop highly!”

Carol Galloway Associate Director, Human Resources, Vancouver Community College

“I don’t think I’ve ever been so satisfied with a workshop (and I’m not easy to please).  I’ve been in courses where the instructor was irritated and rushed with questions but Jason was the exact opposite.”
