You Can Reduce Worker’s Compensation Claims Starting with 4 Action Steps

Reducing the number of claims your employees experience starts with you taking the four proactive steps listed below:

  1. Prioritize Safety: The first step is to be proactive and have a written safety plan in place. It should include disciplinary action for breaking policy and reward systems for following the protocols. Your entire management team should be on board and ensure proper execution of roles and responsibilities. A cohesive and fair implementation of the safety plan, including regular training, will lead to a workplace environment with fewer injury claims.
  2. Take Immediate Action When The Claim Occurs: There will be claims, even when all safety measures have been taken. Time is of the essence so complete an accident report in as much detail as possible, take photographs, and talk to any witnesses. Your first report of the injury should be sent within 24 hours to your insurance company. You should also require a drug test of the employees involved. If you already have a drug testing policy, this should fit right in.
  3. Report Suspicions of Fraud Immediately: Unfortunately, some people will lie. If you suspect fraudulent activity, report it immediately to your insurance company. It will sometimes pay to investigate any suspicion of fraud. For example, imagine if a worker who filed a claim for a back injury was photographed digging a trench. If you had suspected this, you won’t win the suit without the evidence from an investigation.
  4. Review Your Current Policy: Worker’s compensation insurance is not a one-time-and-never-look-at-again purchase. It pays to review your policy for accuracy and to see if the claimant is a repeat offender. Additionally, you will want to check that your experience modification factors reflect the actual number of claims your company files. Your insurance broker can assist you with this.
