Actions for Supportive Workplaces

Line managers and workers need to be able to:

  • Recognise when a colleague is struggling to cope with symptoms or injury

  • Respond to anyone who reports symptoms or is off work

  • Quickly and easily evaluate someone’s work ability (i.e. how they feel they are coping with work and health)

  • Identify any obstacles to staying at work or getting back to work

  • Manage workplace obstacles

  • Arrange reasonable modifications to the job for a period of time (not for ever)

  • Help people build up gradually as they recover



Supportive workplaces allow people to recover while they are working
