Early Injury Intervention
Lower your recordable injuries with Early Injury Intervention
Are you confused about what early injury treatments you should seek for your Wichita employee who has reported a sprain or strain? You are not alone. Most employers are unaware that many soft tissue injuries can be resolved with first aid.
We can help.
Overexertion injuries cost US businesses $13.98 billion dollars each year and account for almost 25% of all workplace injuries.
Injury intervention and management for your Wichita business focuses on reducing your medical claims for the treatment of these injuries and lowering OSHA recordable rates. Employees report early signs of injury such as achiness, weakness, fatigue and clumsiness so treatment can begin much earlier and the issue can be resolved without more costly medical care. This means shorter recovery times, lower costs and improved productivity.
In a physically demanding workplace, the implementation of an early intervention program can make a significant impact. Encouraging early reporting of discomfort paired with an early intervention review helps workers to understand the importance of work conditioning, provides coaching for improved body mechanics, and identifies potential ergonomic issues. The WorkSafe Early Intervention program does all of this. The overall impact is resolution of discomfort, increased productivity of workers and an observed 60% reduction of simple discomfort reports that could have proceeded to a medical evaluation and treatment without the early intervention.”
