Congratulations Jacinta McCartin - Safe Work and Return to Work Awards Finalist for 2021

Occupational Therapy Australia congratulate OTA member Jacinta McCartin, Director of Coastal Rehab, who was one of three Queensland finalists for the Safe Work and Return to Work Awards 2021 – Best Individual contribution to rehabilitation and return to work.

Daniel sustained workplace injuries after rolling a rubbish truck and striking a tree. Daniel spent 4 days in a coma and was in hospital for weeks before he was referred to Jacinta for a driving assessment Class C, 9 months after his injuries were sustained. In just over two years post-injury, Daniel was back driving trucks, had bobcat and forklift tickets and most importantly achieved his goal to return to his usual job.

Well done and congratulations Jacinta on this wonderful achievement!
