Most businesses operate on thin margins, achieving profit through careful budgeting. Maintaining your margins is a challenge when your established expenses climb year after year. Workers’ comp policies generate not only growing costs but also uncertainty as your rates increase by an unpredictable amount every year. One of the best ways to bring climbing expenses under control is by taking control of your workers’ comp policy. Here are the top tips from Samuel Hale for businesses who want to improve their bottom line by reducing workers’ comp claims in California.
Improve worker safety.
Reducing workers’ comp claims in California starts from the moment you hire a new employee. By taking the time for thorough training, particularly with safety procedures, you can significantly reduce the number of injuries that occur at work.
Incorporating safety and personal responsibility into workplace culture encourages employees to take the steps necessary to keep themselves safe and healthy while they’re at work.
Worker safety isn’t a single-day event but involves ongoing training and coaching to ensure every team member knows the risks involved with their position and their responsibilities to stay safe.
Act quickly in response to claims.
Because workers’ comp claims are stressful for both business owners and employees, some employers try to avoid dealing with injuries and accidents when they occur. However, this avoidance can result in a much more expensive claim. By taking quick action, reporting the injury, and providing an employee with fast treatment, you can reduce the ultimate expense of the claim.
When employees return to work, offer light-duty tasks to support their recovery until they’re back to one-hundred percent. By investing in your employees and their well-being, you can reduce fraudulent claims from your team.
Eliminate fraudulent workers’ comp claims.
The work culture of an organization can make a substantial difference in the rate of fraudulent claims. Treating worker safety as secondary to productivity or as an expensive hassle can make workers feel as though they––and their well-being––aren’t valued.
Incorporating safe practices into every aspect of your organization communicates to employees that their workplace values their well-being. As a result, they’ll be more invested in staying safe while on the job.
