Our Purpose

REAL Workplace Solutions provides on-site, workplace injury prevention solutions that lower employer health care costs and improve employee job performance.

The Direct and Indirect Cost of Injury Claims

Those working with or in high-risk occupations should be acutely aware that the direct costs associated with workplace injuries (i.e. medical costs, indemnity payments, case management) are the tip of the iceberg. Beyond direct costs, there are indirect costs. These may include, but are not limited to:

  • Wages for absenteeism not covered by Workers Compensation
  • Cost of department handling the claim
  • Cost of hiring and training a replacement worker
  • Loss of productivity due to new employee learning curves or accommodation of employee injury
  • OSHA fines
  • Legal fees
  • Higher premiums
  • Loss of employee morale

Common concerns surrounding workplace injuries include falls and musculoskeletal strains or sprains. The 2018 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index found that the most costly, serious, non-fatal workplace injury was overexertion of the body while lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, carrying or throwing an object ($13.7 billion). Other costly actions driving workplace injuries include overexertion due to crawling, bending, reaching, twisting, climbing, kneeling and walking ($4.2 billion); as well as repetitive motions on an assembly line ($1.5 billion)

At REAL Workplace Solutions, we believe that musculoskeletal related injuries are preventable with early detection and proactive interventions. It is time to broaden your company’s horizons beyond claims management. Start thinking about injury prevention today.
