NM Mutual Return-To-Work Workshop

Presented by Mary H. Lovato, CSHO – Risk and Safety Consultant & Christine Kasperski – Senior Claims Specialist

Tuesday, February 10, 2015 from 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM

New Mexico Mutual • 3900 Singer Blvd. NE • Albuquerque, NM • (505) 345-7260

Creating a safe work environment and eliminating workplace injuries is the first and most critical step in reducing costs. Lost time injuries are expensive and an early Return-to-Work program can reduce costs, improve productivity, increase safety & employee morale and reduces the potential impact on the employer’s business. Developing and integrating this program prepares everyone ahead of time in the event of an injury by setting expectations for both employers and employees. If an employee, however, is injured on the job, a Return-to-Work program is essential in mitigating costs and supporting the organization’s safety by:

  • Assisting injured employee’s recovery and rehabilitations
  • Returning the employee to his or her regular position more rapidly
  • Increasing productivity by reducing lost work days
  • Increasing morale and motivation and promoting good will within the work place
