2. Provide proper care when an employee is injured.

Job injuries should be dealt with immediately. Develop a process to ensure that injured employees receive the proper car. Processes are important and they will vary depending on the type of injury. But, it is equally important that all employees know to immediately notify their employer or direct supervisor when an injury has occurred. This is a point at which it is critical to obtain the proper information for documentation while still remembering that this is an injured employee who may be in pain and is in need of compassion.

With continuing medical expense inflation, it is especially important to ensure the employee receives the most appropriate car for their particular injury. If emergency treatment is not indicated, a walk-in occupational health or urgent care clinic offer a lower-cost alternative to an emergency room. Assessing an injury upfront can help streamline an employee’s recovery, get them back to work faster and reduce claim-related expenses.
