Preventing Repetitive Motion Injury Through Cost Saving Ergonomics And Workers Compensation Manageme
Venue: Online Training Webinar
|Event Date/Time: Oct 11, 2011||End Date/Time: Oct 11, 2011|
The program will explore the science of ergonomics including the primary and secondary risk factors that are important in preventing cumulative trauma, repetitive motion injuries and other musculoskeletal claims.
Why should you attend: Steven Covey, author of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" said that in order to gain control over problems, you must first seek to understand the problem. Then it will be understood what is needed to manage it better. Work injuries are no different. Many employers disregard the importance of actively managing their workers' compensation because they don't seek to understand the root cause of the problem. Many assume that workersâ€™ compensation is a cost of doing business; that their worker' compensation insurer or third party payer will do the job they were hired to do and that the physician managing the employee's injury will do their part to manage the medical care properly. Unfortunately, that is not the case. When it comes to work injuries, the Employer should be the main one in the driver's seat managing the care of the claim, directing the other players on how to best manage it to incur the least impact. This is best done by understanding the root cause of musculoskeletal disorders.
Areas Covered in the Session: The discussion will introduce employers to the importance of establishing an Ergonomics Process for integrated disability management which includes the prevention of injuries, management of workers' compensation claims and chronic impairments that result in long term disability. Successful outcomes of ergonomics process case studies will be discussed addressing an individual case in which ergonomics was used successfully and from a process oriented approach resulting in employers' saving millions of dollars in claim prevention and management. If you want to get a handle on how your company manages its work injuries, this webinar will give you the insight you need to change the way you and your employees' work.
