1:00 – 2:00 pm
Grand Ballroom 8B
(Entrance through corridor between Grand Ballrooms 7 & 8)
Employers are continuously looking for ways to improve their Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable numbers, DART rates and workers’ compensation costs. Early Symptom Intervention (ESI) programs can create positive changes in these key statistics and in the overall well-being and productivity of workers. While many employers initiate injury prevention programs with good intentions, there are challenges to overcome in order to be successful and maintain a healthy return on investment year over year. In this session, you will hear from two large employers and learn how they were able to successfully customize programs to fit their company’s needs and culture. You will learn why they started the programs, what obstacles they had to overcome, and how they have developed and maintained successful ESI programs looking at statistics and return on investment.
