Wellness Programs Can Reduce Workers’ Comp Claims

Effective corporate wellness initiatives have shown to be successful in not only reducing the duration of lost-time workers’ compensation claims, but also in reducing a company’s workers’ compensation claims, according to a report by Lockton. The report, authored by Lockton’s Michal Gnatek, is titled “Wellness Programs: The Positive Affect on Workers’ Compensation Claims.” Gnatek says that promoting healthy behavior can inhibit unsafe or inattentive workplace behavior. “Risk managers and claims professionals should be adding employee wellness to the available arsenal of weapons to combat increasing claims,” he said. Lockton recommends that risk managers become well acquainted with their companies’ wellness program and find the data on comorbid factors captured by their insurer or third party administrator. Collaborating with internal safety, health, human resource, and environment professionals will help risk managers discover how to integrate employee wellness with workplace safety, he said.
