    Working outdoors: Summer safety tips for work and at home

    Summertime can provide unique challenges for those working outdoors. In addition to tasks people perform at work, many people engage in home projects during the summer that can possess risk of injury. This webinar provides tips and ideas to help your business prepare to keep your staff safe both at work and at home during the summer season. We cover general summer safety tips and resources for a variety of topics, including heat stress and wildfire smoke, as well as common summertime potential risks, such as at-home ladder use. The session provides you with thoughts on how to approach the issues from an administrative perspective as well as links to resources that can be used to provide employees with relevant training.

    SAIF claim basics; and, The value of MCOs in effectively managing claims for municipalities

    Claim basics:
    This is your opportunity to learn everything you need to know about filing a workers' compensation claim. More than just the "when" and "how," this class covers injured worker benefits, claim costs and how they can be influenced, reserving claims, and much more.

    Value of MCOs:
    As claim managers for your organization, one of your top goals is to support your injured workers in their recovery and return to work. Sometimes that recovery takes longer, or the worker is not progressing back to full duty status as quickly as one would expect. Since insurers are prohibited from directing medical treatment, you may have wondered what other processes or tools are available to make sure injured workers get timely, appropriate, and adequate care.

    One of the most important, but possibly least understood, are managed care organizations (MCOs), who play a vital role behind the scenes with the care and recovery of your injured workers. In this one-hour session, we provide an overview of MCOs and services they provide, including precertification of treatment, assisting with access to care, pharmacy use, and medical treatment reviews to resolve issues such as prolonged disability or failure to improve. Specific case studies are shared to provide a better sense for how MCOs have been used to achieve better outcomes and savings.

At this session, you learn:

    • Why the use of leading indicators in your safety program is important and valuable
    • How you might identify leading indicators within your organization that can make a difference in reducing frequency
    • How to create a plan based on leading indicators using the OSHA guide
