The psychological claim management toolkit is designed to assess the effectiveness of the health and safety policy and procedures as well as its legislative compliance. It provides a means to review employee’s claims helping see to it that they are adequately compensated.
The tool is mostly used by organisations with self-insurances to help them meet the standards set by the Commission for the management of workers’ compensation claims. As such, the claims management system within the organisation should be designed in accordance with the Commission’s performance standards and the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act.
What is a claims management system
A claims management system encompasses all the elements that constitute an organisation’s management policy. These include the organisational structure, procedures and resources. The toolkit ascertains whether a company has the necessary measures in place to guarantee;
- Compliance with relevant legislations as well as the company policy
- Identify gaps in the current system for improvement
- The claims management tool
The tool is based on the Occupational health and safety management standards and it assesses management systems based on the following;
- Commitment and corporate governance
- Measurement and evaluation
- Review and improvement
