Legal Question in Workers Comp in Missouri

My husband got hurt at work and injured his leg. He is not able to bare weight for long periods of time nor climb. Considering his job requires a lot of lifting, climbing, and straining I am concerned for him. He went to the dr and was told he can go back to work with no restrictions. He climbs up to 40 feet in the air and refuses to go back to work because he is affraid he may fall off a ladder or scaffeling and get hurt worse or even die! Does this mean that his wages will not be paid if he is not going to work even though he has been released to go back with no restrictions? He has a torn collateral legiment in his leg very close to the knee!
