Minimize the Impact of Injury Claims on Your Bottom Line

Are Worker’s Compensation Injury Claims Affecting Your Bottom Line?

Short answer: Yes!

Can you do anything about it? Absolutely!

When one of your employees is injured on the job, it can be challenging to stop everything, conduct a thorough incident investigation, submit a report, and manage the claim.

Let’s look at Sarah. Sarah works at a daycare and experiences a back injury while lifting a child. She immediately informs you, her employer, and you send her to receive medical attention. Sarah’s doctor finds that her back injury is more severe than initially thought, requiring her to take 6 weeks off work.

What do you do now?!

All injury claims have the potential to become complex and drawn out if not managed appropriately. Prolonged time loss injuries lead to increased claim costs, contributing to higher employer WCB premiums. This is just one reason why effectively managing your WCB claims as early as possible is crucial.

Meanwhile, employers with a well-developed claims management program typically see a 20-30% reduction in workdays lost per claim. So, where do you start?

Service Hospitality offers a full-day workshop that will provide you with the key pieces needed to take control of all aspects of claims management. This workshop will teach you:

  • Developing a process for managing claims and modified work prior to an injury occurring

  • Managing physical and psychological injury claims, including accommodations and modified work

  • Methods to tackle long term claims to get them back on track

  • Ways to mitigate costs to the organization and the injured worker

So, what about Sarah?

With your new claims management knowledge, you will be able to provide Sarah with a safe and sustainable return-to-work plan, shorten her absence from work, help her return to full earnings much faster, and reduce your overall costs.
