Without an Injury Reporting System
Without the implementation of an injury reporting system, businesses would face a number of challenges, leading many to prefer outsourcing their injury reporting systems.
A few of these risks include;
- Minor musculoskeletal injuries are directed to a medical center for treatment. This approach can be more expensive, time-consuming, and less effective.
- General medical practitioners may lack familiarity with the workplace environment and the employer’s capacity to offer modified duties.
- Injured workers treated by general practitioners can get entangled in a system that doesn’t emphasize returning to work promptly, prolonging the employee’s recovery timeline.
- Large organisations may encounter challenges responding to workplace injuries due to poor communication systems.
- Supervisors may lack appropriate training for effective injury management.
