Axiom Medical assists clients with Injury Reporting to track and manage work-related incidents so that immediate intervention measures can be implemented. Injury or incident reporting is a part of our incident case management program, which oversees employee injury cases from reporting to return-to-work. Information contained in the reports is essential to address workplace injuries and maintain successful safety programs.
When an injury isn't reported right away, it can lead to a costly outcome for both the employer and employee. After all, a healthier workforce means lower OSHA recordable outcomes and lesser workplace injuries.
HEALTHIER WORKFORCE + LOWER RECORDABLES = WIN/WIN
Stay compliant with Axiom Medical Injury Reporting and Case Management program and protect your employees from a lost time. Our Injury Case Management and Workplace-Injury Reporting aims at lowering the number of OSHA recordable outcomes while reducing their time away from work.
Timely incident reporting helps employers manage:
Axiom keeps 65% of all cases called in at the first-aid level, with an experienced case manager team set in place to assess the injury during its most crucial phase. As soon as a workplace injury is reported, our injury managers will work closely with your employee to provide first-aid care. We will be your employees' first point-of-contact, and the primary resource for quality and personalized medical treatment. Some of the highlights of our Injury Reporting program are:
Did you know the average cost of a workplace injury costs an organization $7,500?
While the direct costs may seem minimal, the indirect costs can be a lot more than the employers expect. Indirect costs can include lost productivity, production training for a replacement, and overtime pay for those employees replacing the injured out on leave.
Take a simple ligament sprain, for instance.
If the employee reports his injury immediately, his treatment for the sprain will begin soon. With first aid measures, they will start with their healing process and return to work in an expedited manner. If left untreated, the employee's injury may worsen and often result in unnecessary testing, work releases, specialty referrals, and lost time away from work. In short, timely incident reporting helps both employees and employers in avoiding serious consequences.
Employers with more than ten employees are legally required to record and report all serious work-related injuries and illnesses with an exemption of specific low-risk industries. However, minor injuries require only first aid and do not need to be recorded.
The recorded information helps employers, employees, and OSHA to evaluate workplace safety, understand and avoid workplace hazards, and implement worker protections to prevent, reduce, and eliminate future workplace injuries and illnesses.
Recordable workplace injury and illness reporting are also known as Injury Reporting or Incident Reporting. Such workplace incidents include vehicle accidents, workplace injuries that require time off from work, chemical spills, and other similar workplace injuries.
Reporting workplace accidents is the best way to address the employee's health problems and prevent such incidents in the future. A delay in treatment can increase an incident's risk and have a recordable outcome by 60 percent. With incident case management and quick reporting, every employee injury case is treated on time, so it doesn't progress and become worse. Even if your employees don't need medical care, such injury reporting program records the case, shows how it was managed, and helps create a workplace injury prevention plan for future incidents.
After all, reporting injuries and illnesses is the best way to identify and to prevent workplace hazards. Benefits of a successful workplace injury and incident reporting program include:
Any recordable injury and work-related fatalities should be reported within 8 hours of learning about it. Employees can only report fatalities within the last 30-days of a work-related incident leading to a casualty. Employers must report any inpatient hospitalization, amputation, or eye loss incidents within 24 hours of learning about it.
