Injury management is a workplace-managed process incorporating the employer and medical management team, from the time of injury to facilitate an efficient maintenance in or return to suitable employment. Effective injury management provides physical, psychological and financial benefits to employees.
Every employer needs to exercise adequate premium Management to ensure that they are paying the correct level of workers compensation premium. At the same time, every employer must also have a good understanding of how to exercise good injury and claims management as the risk of a workplace accident causing injury is always present.
For most employers workers compensation premiums make up a significant portion of an employer’s total insurance spend. Many employers believe that workers compensation premiums cannot be minimised and that Agents / Insurers will manage claims on the employer’s behalf. This is not true. Premiums can be actively minimised via effective injury, claims and premium management. Agents / Insurers are not working in the employer’s or injured worker’s best interests. They exist to ensure that injured workers receive the compensation that they are legally obliged to receive. Just as injured workers can call upon lawyers to try and maximise the compensation that they receive, so can an employer call upon experts such as ReWork to minimise the cost of workplace injuries, claims and their premium.
