~~“Research has shown that individuals with non-occupational back, knee and/or shoulder injuries who work in the manufacturing industry are at high risk of becoming unemployed. To see whether providing intensive return-to-work coordination hastens their recovery and improves their chances of remaining employed, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services applied for and received a RETAIN grant from the U.S. Department of Labor. This grant will allow Ohio to develop and pilot a model that, if successful, can be replicated across the state.”
