First Aid and Your Ex Mod | Workers' Comp Savings from Non Traditional Sources

We will discuss the recent legislative changes with regard to first aid claims and the overall impact on the California employer.  We will also discuss what underwriters are looking for when pricing a policy and the programs that can help reduce the overall insurance spend for most employers.

Ergonomics & Millennials
Risk managers and Human Resources professionals have focused much of their attention on the needs of aging employees, while overlooking a potentially more challenging ergonomic conundrum — ergonomics for Millennials. In just a few years, Millennials will make up 75% of the global workforce, and they will enter the workforce having used technology all of their lives with developed patterns and habits around that use of technology. Discover practical ways to manage young workers’ comfort and deal with their potentially pre-existing injuries.

Lying for Money: A Doctor’s Perspective on Workers’ Comp Fraud
Whether it’s tax fraud, accounting fraud, Medicare fraud, auto insurance fraud, or workers’ comp fraud, it’s all the same thing: Seeking financial gain through deception. Anyone who touches a workers’ compensation claim, including claimants, employers, lawyers, insurance companies, and doctors, have an opportunity to profit from lying. Attendees will learn how to detect workers’ comp fraud from these various players, and what to do about it.

Ethics of Safety Leadership; Building and Strengthening Your Safety Culture
Designed to educate and offer a “big picture” understanding of safety; this program will focus on strategies for strengthening a healthy safety culture. Participants will explore ethical safety leadership concepts; what drives a healthy safety culture; and ultimately the moral, legal and financial obligations we all have as “safety coaches” in our respective organizations.
