Permanent Impairment

What's the Difference between Impairment and Disability?

Basically defined, impairment is when a person's physical or psychological health, structure, and/or function is changed or damaged. Workplace injuries are an example of impairment in that they cause a person physical, psychological, or emotional damage, which is sometimes permanent. However, such impairment may not necessarily affect the person's ability to perform their required duties in the workplace. Disability, on the other hand, is defined as a person's incapacity to perform their job, usually due to an injury or other form of impairment. Disability is a result of impairment, but impairment does not always result in disability. It is also important to note that impairment can be permanent or temporary, and there is also permanent and temporary disability.
