Description:

There are a number of ways to effectively manage employee injuries and illnesses that comply with associated OSHA recordkeeping/reporting requirements and satisfactorily meet all workers’ compensation requirements. And, one of the more successful approaches, especially from a cost and productivity perspective is to implement a comprehensive return-to-work (RTW) program including a light-duty component.

Companies that have successful RTW programs with a light-duty component in place can reduce workers’ compensation costs drastically. These programs reduce temporary disability, medical, rehabilitation, and re-training and help get employees back to their assigned position more quickly, which results in cost savings in both re-training and job performance efficiencies.

But, setting up an effective RTW/light-duty program takes a lot of work and commitment at all level of the organization. Don’t let those hurdles scare your company off!

Join us for proven approaches to developing and implementing an effective return-to-work process.

You’ll learn:

  • OSHA recordkeeping reporting requirements concerning RTW and light-duty
  • Practical and legal issues you must consider under applicable workers' compensation, Americans with Disabilities Act, Family and
  • Medical Leave Act, and OSHA regulations
  • How to identify and communicate the benefits of a comprehensive RTW/light-duty program
  • What you should be prepared to tell company management about your RTW/light duty policy, and how to get critical buy in for the executive team
  • Key elements to include in your RTW/LD program—and how to tell if your existing RTW/light-duty program could use an overhaul
  • Who should be involved with developing and implementing the program
  • Successful strategies for working with medical providers and treating physicians
  • Best practices for documenting the requirements for permanent and transitional jobs to better work with medical staff
  • Tell-tale signs that supervisors are or aren’t following the RTW process and related medical limitations for a given employee
  • How to prepare successful—and practical—RTW plans for your workforce
  • Employee and union concerns that may occur

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
