On-Demand Webinar: 5 Return to Work Strategies That You Need to Be Leveraging Now
There may be no more crucial task in workers’ compensation claims management than successful return to work. After all, that’s the core reason we manage the risk to begin with; to bring an injured worker back to full recovery, fully compensated and ready to resume a productive career.
But crafting a successful return to work program is no cut-and-paste exercise. Doing so requires rigorous attention to trends in workers’ compensation such as the biopsychosocial model, innovations in meaningful light duty transitions, and of course the scourge of pain medication addiction that plagues not only injured workers, but our population in general.
Here are the five key strategies claims managers and self-insureds need to be implementing now.
- Focusing in on each specific aspect of the biopsychosocial model.
- Investing in a transferable skills analysis to engage an injured worker that has restrictions.
- Partnering with a volunteer organization that can get workers back on schedule, more quickly.
- Knowing the difference between what an employee was hired to do and what they are actually doing.
- Employing ergonomic assessments to prevent injury.
In this webinar, Erica Fichter, a Broadspire executive with more than 28 years of industry experience and Don Noel, the risk and safety manager at the School District of Palm Beach County will also discuss…
- Pre-employment testing and how it impacts workers’ compensation claims.
- Creating dashboards that can calculate total cost of claims per employee.
- Implementing safety teams and building institution-wide buy-in for them.
