Emery's recovery and return to work story
Supporting people to return to work and life
The intent of the Act is to help injured workers recover from their injuries and return to safe and sustainable employment.
ReturnToWorkSA believes all injured workers, including those with a serious injury, should be provided with the same opportunities to access employment in the open labour market and experience the health benefits of work. Being employed positively impacts quality of life by providing a sense of purpose and deeper connection with the community.
ReturnToWorkSA and our claims managers are committed to guiding and supporting injured workers to re-engage with the community, including making a return to work where possible.
Emery was seriously injured at work on his farm in 2017. Emery and his wife Loretta share his recovery and return to work journey in the video below.
