For the unprepared, workers’ compensation issues can be both confusing and costly. Fortunately for employers, there are ways to actively engage in these issues to influence their outcomes.
Through management controls and active involvement in the work comp process, your organization can effectively influence related costs. To do so you will have to establish a number of your own processes such as:
- Inspecting your insurance policy to make sure that all job classifications and payrolls are correct.
- Making an investment in workplace safety to avoid accidents to improve claim histories and reduce overall costs. If you modify operating procedures even slightly, you can alleviate unnecessary exposure to injuries.
- Create a modified duty program at your organization to help injured employees return to work sooner. Under these programs, employees are assigned duties that they can physically complete while they recover. The most successful return to work programs incorporate speedy, quality medical care and assistance to reduce emotional stress after an accident.
There are other actions that your organization can take to reduce workers’ compensation costs, and we have the tools to show you how.
