Conducting Workers Compensation Investigations

Duration: 90 minutes

Speaker: Teri Morning

 

Webinar Description

Most employers care greatly for providing a safe place to work for their employees and want to provide safe working conditions, which includes providing appropriate workers compensation benefits in the case of an occupational injury or illness.

 

In the event of an accident in the workplace, employers are required to perform a thorough, objective, professional investigation. When any workplace accident occurs, some degree of confusion follows. In the event of an accident with injury, if the accident investigation does not support the details of the injury, it may also be necessary to review the validity of any related workers compensation claim(s). Such a review can uncover previously undetermined details regarding the reason for the accident. Such circumstances warrant a review from those who run responsible companies.

 

Good accident investigation procedures can heighten safety awareness on a daily basis and cause safety to be in the front of everyone’s mind every day. Such best practices include good processes for reviewing workers compensation claims.

 

The presence of effective safety investigation protocols lessens the probably of an accident occurring as unsafe conditions can be discovered before an accident can occur. The presence of solid workers compensation investigation protocols lessens the likelihood of dubious workers compensation claims occurring.
