The latest news and information on workers' compensation, risk management, and loss control.
It’s not uncommon for businesses to be unexpectedly confronted by employee complaints about occupational health. Such complaints may involve exposure to chemical vapor or dust, a problem with a paint system, noise, a laser cutting table and many other seemingly complex issues. Employers are required to recognize and control occupational health hazards in the same manner as they do safety hazards.
The Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout-Tagout) regulation first went into effect in 1989. The intent of the standard was to prevent injuries and deaths caused by accidental start-up of equipment during maintenance or servicing. In large part, the standard has been successful and can be attributed to saving an estimated 122 lives and preventing over 28,000 injuries each year, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Even with this success, OSHA recognizes that many employers are still deficient in some areas.

Data reporting and calculation errors can impact your workers’ compensation experience mod — and the amount of premium that your organization must pay. Checking for and questioning such errors is an important, but often overlooked way to help reduce work comp costs.
Despite your best efforts, sometimes accidents happen. What happens next can determine whether a claim has a positive or negative outcome for you and the injured employee. Associated Comp Advisors can assist you with quickly and safely getting your injured employees back to work, reducing workers’ compensation costs and employee turnover, and increasing productivity.
