Direct and indirect costs from workplace injuries and work-related illnesses take a toll on your bottom line. You might see the immediate costs of an injury, but the indirect costs, much harder to measure, add up quickly. Decreased productivity, retraining of replacement employees and drops in employee morale are all reasons to take injury case management seriously. Accident investigations, OSHA-required injury recording, and workers’ compensation case management can drain your time and financial resources.
Carol Keyes, a Certified Case Manager (CCM) and Certified Rehabilitation Consultant (CRC), leads the CHESS team of workplace injury management professionals. She has worked with hundreds of injured employees, helping them return to work after injuries.
