Three Winning Loss Control Tactics – Social Services

September 11, 2018

Eastern Nebraska Human Services Agency (ENHSA) is a UH partner supporting individual and employee safety. Providing education and guidance on safe assisting and proper patient transfer has been at the forefront of ENHSA’s culture for many years and their team continues to drive positive change with United Heartland’s support.

ENHSA team members, employees and location managers diligently track where injury or near-miss-injuries have occurred. With valuable information in hand, the ENHSA team collaborates with United Heartland to develop highly targeted educational and support programs, instrumental in mitigating risks to employees and supported individuals. In fact, their efforts have resulted in the following loss control achievements:

  • Development of employee training/feedback sessions to identify situations with specific challenges
  • Observation of employees with manual job tasks to identify the need for, and purchase of, new equipment such as hi/low tables, lift equipment/slings, as well as recommendations for mobility procedure modifications
  • Specialized one-on-one support and guidance on using new equipment and safe lifting techniques

The collaboration between United Heartland and Eastern Nebraska Human Services Agency has not only promoted employee and supported individual safety, but also helped ENHSA remain committed to enhancing procedures for safe individual handling on an ongoing basis.
