Toolbox - Injury Management and Transitional Duty
When 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
This 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 this page often and share it with your organization to review resources we’ve provided. We’re pleased to assist our customers in the manufacturing industry and provide information to help them work safer. To see previous phases of our Manufacturing Loss Control Campaign, click here.
