How Does an Injury Prevention Services Program Help Manufacturers?
For employers, having an injury prevention services program helps reduce workplace injuries and employee absence. In fact, there was a 67% reduction in musculoskeletal injuries within 18 months of having an on-site program.6
These services not only help reduce injuries, but also improve safety and morale. A healthier workforce increases productivity and shows employees that their well-being is important.
“Employers face the challenge of maintaining a safe work environment which can include a determination if an employee is fit for duty,” said Dr. Adam L. Seidner, The Hartford’s Chief Medical Officer. “Our injury prevention solutions can help employers overcome this challenge by providing them with tools and programs. Employees are an employer’s most important asset and productivity depends on keeping employees safe and on the job.”
The injury preventions services program also provides valuable insights like pre-injury and post claim data. Employers can use this type of information to help drive change and make their facilities safer.
