What is a Contact Log?
A Contact Log is a record of communication between your company and an injured/ill employee.
Why do I need a Contact Log?
A Contact Log is used to document any contact between your company and the injured worker. The log keeps track of each conversation with the worker, in addition to others involved in the case (i.e. authorities, health and safety representatives, health professionals, and supervisors).
Communication between your company and the injury/ill employee will be necessary to share information and plan a safe return to work. Early and ongoing communication has been proven to be a vital part of an ill/injured employee’s safe return to work.
How do I use a Contact Log?
- In the event of an employee illness or injury, follow policies and procedures to ensure that appropriate care is provided
- Each time contact is made with the employee, record it in the log
- Consult the log to determine the appropriate steps for his/her return to work
