The University of Calgary is committed to fostering a safe working, learning and research environment. Despite our best efforts, injuries and accidents can happen. When they do, it is important to minimize the impact of these injuries by focusing on timely medical care and returning faculty and staff back to safe and meaningful work as soon as medically suitable.
Staff Wellness works closely with all stakeholders to implement early and safe return to work plans for faculty and staff who have experienced a work-related injury or illness. Plans may include modified or alternate duties, which have been shown to help reduce injury recovery time and improve medical outcomes.
