Injury and Illness Management
Our team believes in process management. We believe that the process should not manage us. Key to good process management is team work and team communication which translates to cost-effective injury and illness management; ease in regulatory driven recordkeeping and most importantly, good clinical outcomes.
Strategies that reduce injury and illness
- Compliance consulting – recommendations for meeting OSHA guidelines, the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Department of Transportation programs and requirements of other regulatory agencies.
- Ergonomics evaluation and design – analysis of the interaction between employees and their workplace, equipment, facilities, work methods and tools and the design of cost-effective solutions to ergonomic hazards.
- Pre-placement/new hires physicals – examinations that assist employers in the job placement process.
- Education and training programs – educational materials help employees protect their own health and safety. Special classes in safe work techniques such as proper lifting and body mechanics are also available. Health and wellness strategies are also designed around your specific corporate goals to enhance employee wellness, productivity and engagement.
MIOSHA recordkeeping guidelines
Good clinical outcomes are our teams' goal number one. We also understand both the nuances and differences between MIOSHA recordable (is it first aid or medical treatment?) and Workers' Compensation compensable decision making. We understand the difference between medical (physical or biological in nature) causation and legal (cause in fact and proximate cause) causation to be different concepts.
Supporting our customers' decision-making is area where our team excels. We understand that MIOSHA expects employers to maintain and be responsible for their own MIOSHA 300 Log. Still, we know the value of providing our customers with reliable and timely information to support both their MIOSHA recordkeeping and Workers' Compensation compensability decision making.
Both our clinician and 24:7 telephonic triage specialist teams realize the importance of eliciting a good occupational and specific incident related history. Our written reports demonstrate our understanding of the importance of documenting "early-on" the who, what, where, when and how (specific mechanism of injury) details. Our team members have served both as custodian and administrators of MIOSHA 300 Logs in their careers.
