One important component of injury management is a transitional work program that allows injured employees to participate in work activities as soon as medically possible.  And, the savings from managing costly lost-time claims is considerable for employers.  Consider these facts:

  • A BWC study showed that on average, employers who used a transitional work program saved $1,108 in disability costs and returned their injured workers to work 10 days sooner.
  • Indirect costs such as lower productivity and increased human-resource expenses are four times greater than the actual claim costs.
  • Injured workers who return to work as soon as they are medically able maintain their working relationships and a regular paycheck.

We see evidence every day that suggests injured workers recover faster when everyone is working toward the same goal - a safe and early return to work.  For more information on how transitional work can save thousands in disability-related costs, contact your COSE claims manager.
