Developing Safety Incentive Programs to Reduce Workers' Compensation Claims

OnDemand Webinar (89 minutes)

Learn how to properly structure a sound incentive program to control claims.

OSHA has declared war on certain types of safety incentive programs, and companies can be fined by OSHA or become the subject of whistle-blower protection legal actions if programs are improperly structured. Learn about OSHA's current enforcement program related to incentives, discuss the do's and don'ts when designing safety incentives, address the benefits of incentive programs in controlling workers' compensation claims, and advise on how to effectively structure programs while avoiding legal liability.
