Avoid Common Errors When Handling Workplace Injuries

There's no question that an improper understanding of what to do when a workplace injury occurs creates serious legal trouble for any employer. Fortunately, an HR department that has a solid understanding of the proper course of action to take can prove its worth in many ways, including savings in lost productivity and costly litigation fees. This informative course highlights serious mistakes that employers make when injuries occur and offers solutions to keep the same mistakes from happening in your organization. Effectively handle work-related injuries in a manner that follows the law - register today!

  • Document workplace incidents and interview injured employees, their co-workers and supervisors in a fair and legally compliant manner.
