As the boss, you want your employees to be safe at work. When occupational accidents do happen, however, a workers compensation claim gets filed. There are 3 key ways you can reduce your worker’s comp claims.
1. Track the Process
Fast response and quick filing are just the beginning of keeping up with a workers comp incident, according to www.insuremyworkcomp.com. You want to make sure that the process goes smoothly. This is a good task for your PEO. If you do not have a human resources department, you can outsource this work so that you can stay on top of it.
2. Establish Clear Return-to-Work Procedures
The longer an employee stays away from work, the more your claim will be. Clear policies and procedures can help them stay on track with the target return-to-work date.
3. Implement Safety Training
The best way to lower costs is, of course, to prevent injury in the first place. Mandatory safety training ensures that everyone knows how to do their jobs in such a way that the risk of injury is lowered. Not only does this protect your employees but it also keeps costs down.
A little organization and training can help you reduce workers compensation claims. In turn, you may be able to lower your premiums, reducing your costs as well.
