Return to work after cancer

There is an increasing amount of information available for line managers, human resources and occupational health professionals on helping individuals with cancer stay in work.

However, until this research, there had been a lack of evidence on specific health and safety issues and effective approaches to risk assessment and risk management for occupational safety and health (OSH) professionals, and others, to support those undergoing treatment or returning to work after cancer.

The research addresses this evidence gap by:

  • seeking to understand the health and safety implications of returning to work after cancer and cancer treatment
  • identifying what employers can do to facilitate return to work and what is good practice in dealing with health and safety issues
