Question On The Main Subject In Our Workers Comp Presentations
I see that you do quite a few Workers Comp presentations. What is the subject that you talk about most and what subject causes the most questions? (A great question).
The subject that I speak on Workers Comp about really depends on the audience. I spend a large amount of prep time tailoring my speech to the attendees. Workers Compensation is not the most exciting subject.
The subject that seems to be the most popular is the Workers Comp claims that have gone from a minor claim to a much more serious claim for no reason. The other main concern by employers is when employees will not return to work.
The main subject that I present is what can be done by employers to control Workers Comp costs TODAY. I will mention the Five Keys to Cutting Workers Comp Costs. There are prior posts that cover them in more detail. They are:
- Immediate injury reporting
- Medical Treatment Networks
- Return to Work Programs
- How the employee was treated
- Adoption of management to cutting Workers Comp costs
I have spoken about these five for well over twenty years. It is amazing how many of the employers’ questions can be answered by these five topics.
If you are in the Raleigh, NC area on 6/10/08, I will be presenting on Workers Comp. See the next post for more information.
