Enact a return to work program
appropriate for the employee’s limited work abilities.
Conduct pre-employment, post accident and
random drug testing.
Implement a robust safety program that
starts with initial new hire training, is followed up on
a regular basis, and places the burden of accountability
on the line managers. These programs are not very
effective unless senior management emphasizes the
strategic importance of these programs to the
organization as a whole.
Verify the accuracy of the mod
computation – mistakes are more common than you think!
Report and manage claims promptly.
Consider carrying a large deductible and
pay smaller claims. This will vary by state depending on
whether you are in a gross or net reporting state.
Review claims with your claims handling
administrator on a regular basis for a certain claim
threshold (i.e. claims greater than $10,000).
Be aware of tasks that seem to repeatedly
cause injuries and change the nature of these tasks. If
possible, rotate employees through jobs presenting the
greatest risk of repetitive motion injuries.
Understand the true cost of your firm's
losses. This can be accomplished through analyses such
as those provided with our ModMaster program.
Implement a company wide rewards program
for reduced claim frequency.
