The true costs involved with this type of claim can often be hidden. While workers' compensation reimburses the injured employee, the employer incurs a number of expenses, such as the costs associated with hiring and training a substitute employee. This is assuming the vacancy can be filled in today's competitive job market. If a suitable replacement is not found, the employer might have to pay overtime to remaining employees for their increased workload.
Safety is not something that should be taken lightly. It does not happen on its own. It is an established, disciplined, and learned process. US&C can help you learn this process and implement best practices in order to have more of those "least expensive claims".
