Safety Awareness – 5 Steps to an Effective Post-Injury Return-to-Work Program


It is a sobering statistic: at least four million Americans have quit their jobs every month since July 2021 (Bureau of Labor Statistics, March 2022). There is no hard and fast “why,” because reasons run the gamut from employees finding better opportunities to early retirement.

This environment has been difficult for employers as they have lost seasoned workers and attempted to source and hire new employees. First-year employees are historically known to report more workers’ compensation claims. In addition, operating with fewer workers may add to employee workloads, require longer work hours, and consequently lead to more injuries.
