Workers’ Comp: Top 5 Ways to Reduce Costly Claims - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how you can take control of indirect costs associated with workers’ comp claims that insurance doesn’t cover to improve your operational efficiency and bottom line.

Organizational profitability is important; however, it’s only half of the equation. Controlling operational cost is the other half, and workers’ compensation claims can eat up a big chunk of that budget.

The direct costs of workers’ compensation claims are clear; medical costs and wage replacement payments. Employers also experience other indirect costs, which often exceed the direct cost. These hidden costs include wages paid to employees that aren’t covered by insurance, overtime costs, administrative time, replacement worker costs, and lost productivity.

Employer’s aren’t helpless in this situation, however. With strong workers’ compensation claim management and strategies you can control the cost associated with claims. This webinar will share with you techniques that work in the “real” world by real risk managers.

Use this on-demand webinar when Lauren Gizzi, ARM, AIC, CRIS, AINS, CSP, the safety director for Assurance, and Monica Brennan, PHR, SHRM-CP, the workers’ compensation and safety coordinator at Bear Construction Company, will reveal the top 5 (and more) ways to reduce workers’ compensation claims so you can minimize legal risks and decrease lost time due to workplace injuries and illnesses and costly workers’ compensation premiums, claim payments, and lump-sum settlements.

You’ll learn:

  • The cost savings associated with timely accident investigation
  • How to thoroughly investigate an incident
  • The benefits of establishing some strong medical networks or occupational health provider. (i.e. Illinois – PPN; Indiana – direct medical)
  • Strategies on how to avoid claim litigation
  • Approaches to engage with an injured employee and the impact on claims management
  • Benefits from establishing a strong return to work program
