All fields required.

What does workers' compensation insurance cover?

Workers’ compensation is required by law to protect you and your employees from costs and damages resulting from work-related injuries or illnesses. It provides for:
  • Medical care and lost wages for employees
  • Expenses related to claims and workplace-injury lawsuits
  • Services to help employees recover and return to work

Did you know?

$62B was spent by U.S. employers on workers' compensation claims in 2016.

6 best practices to drive down workers' compensation claims and costs

Screen employees before you hire

Hire only employees qualified for the demands of a given job. Have a third party perform physicals and functional capacity evaluations to assess prospective employees.

Maintain the physical workplace

Make sure worksites are well maintained and regularly evaluated for hazards. Perform preventive maintenance where applicable.

Provide the necessary tools for the job

Assess the required work, establish appropriate on-the-job rules, train employees to perform their tasks safely, and provide all necessary tools and protective equipment.

Institute a twice-daily check-in

Require workers to check in with a supervisor at the beginning and end of the day, especially those who perform physically demanding jobs. The morning meeting might include a five-minute warm-up; in the evening, everyone could be required to sign a statement that says “I left the job healthy today.”

Establish a return-to-work (RTW) program

Curb long-term workers’ compensation costs by bringing employees back to the office/project more quickly. Your RTW program could include part-time work, telecommuting, and modified work duties and schedules.

Promote the physical and emotional health of employees

Consider instituting a program that promotes and rewards healthy lifestyle choices. Make sure your supervisors aren’t emphasizing production goals at the expense of safety.
