Safety Management System - Avoid Workplace Injury

Getting an injured employee to return to work is stressful. Without a safety management system, you’ll be left dumbstruck trying to figure out how exactly to handle workplace injuries. 

Your employee’s rehabilitation relies on positive attitudes, supportive co-working relationships, as well as active collaboration between employers, workers, and medical practitioners. Most importantly, your workers are dependent on a safety management system (SMS) that only you can provide.

What Is Workplace Injury Management?

Workplace Injury Management is two-fold; it is a system that offers employers a structured return-to-work program while also providing attention and care to injured employees. This is essential for supporting workers who were injured and filed a workers’ compensation claim. Best practices will help the injured associate find a regular routine within the team. Just because your employee filed a claim does not mean you and the employee are at a complete loss. With the right approach, you can cut the costs of workers’ compensation by providing a pathway to staying in the workplace.

 

Light Duty Pathway’s safety management system helps employers easily focus on supporting their greatest asset: people. Furthermore, our safety program smoothly and efficiently creates a comfortable transition for both you and your injured employee.

What Is A Workplace Injury?
