UH Manufacturing Loss Control Campaign: Why Injury Management Programs Matter

injury mgmt manufacturingWhen it comes to injury management programs, many manufacturers believe they already have an effective one in place. However, our Loss Control consultants often find that while customers have some aspects of a program in place, gaps exist which can have costly implications for the organization.

Having an effective injury management program is vital to providing the best care for injured employees while helping to control claim costs. Benefits of an effective injury management program include:

  • Improved employee morale – employees identify with a culture that cares for its injured employees
  • Prompt and better care for injured employees
  • Accelerated healing time
  • Reduce lost work days
  • Lower workers’ compensation costs

The final phase of United Heartland’s Manufacturing Loss Control Campaign examines how to develop and implement an effective injury management program as well as provide and make the case for transitional duty opportunities in manufacturing settings. Through our experience in working with manufacturing customers, we have identified best practices that help these programs succeed and thrive.

We encourage you to visit our Injury Management page often and share it with others in your organization to review the resources we’ve provided.

United Heartland is committed to helping our manufacturing customers keep their employees safe on the job through dedicated, expert loss control service and our extensive resources. As always, please contact your loss control representative with questions, or call us at 1-800-258-2667.
