Although construction is a much safer industry for workers today than in the past, workplace injuries still occur. One mishandled injury, even if it is seemingly minor, can result in years of negative impact on a company’s finances and reputation. Being prepared to deal with issues related to an injured employee before an event happens is key to minimizing the damage. This session will examine the various ways that an injury claim can affect a company’s Experience Modification Rating (EMR), Incident Rate Ratios, and employee morale as well as what can be done to minimize the effect of an injury by having proper policies and processes in place to effectively manage a claim.
