Top 5 Amerisafe Case Management Practices:

1.) Follow through with employees regarding appointments and health treatment plans. Amerisafe Group values both employers’ and employees’ time alike, and by following up with appointments and occupational health treatments, employees have access to a helping hand in the process, making them less likely to forget about crucial appointments and available occupational health treatments

2.) Familiarize other providers with pertinent information about job requirements.

3.) Keep outside healthcare providers informed about workplace health claims and injuries. As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important now than ever to create consistent lines of communication between ourselves and our clients. This process allows us to more effectively and accurately communicate necessary data.

4.) Thoroughly analyze medical treatments, health and wellness plans, and set realistic goals. We want our clients to have the best information possible to make intelligent and logical decisions.

5.) Return employees to the job in an appropriate amount of time. While employees are off the job, Amerisafe creates realistic and reliable return-to-work plans.

Employers also have the choice to integrate their occupational health services with other primary care services. Amerisafe provides protocols, training, and software that will help to ensure the practical unification of operational health clinics and services from primary care physicians. While this integration is often efficient and beneficial, Amerisafe maintains a strict separation of health data. Work-related and (non)work-related health data will remain separate regardless of primary care integration.

Frequently Asked Questions

An example of occupational health is when a manufacturing company is concerned about potential health hazards in their workplace, so they hire an occupational health nurse to conduct evaluations. The nurse assesses the work environment and employees to identify any existing or potential hazards.

The nurse may find environmental health risks, such as noise levels in certain areas of the manufacturing facility that exceed damaging thresholds without proper ear protection. The nurse works with management to implement a hearing conservation program, including noise monitoring, engineering controls, protective equipment, audiometric testing, and training.

The primary purpose of occupational health is to promote and maintain the highest degree of physical, mental, and social well-being of workers in all occupations by preventing departures from health, controlling risks, and adapting work to people and people to their jobs. The goal is to improve public health, reduce risks that cause repetitive stress, and help ensure workplace safety.

There are several parties who share responsibility for ensuring good occupational health:

  • Employers: Employers have a legal and ethical duty to provide safe and healthy working conditions to protect their employees from workplace hazards.
  • Workers: Employees also have a responsibility to comply with workplace health and safety procedures and apply training to identify hazards and unsafe conditions.
  • Government Agencies: United States government institutions like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) create occupational health regulations and standards that workplaces must legally comply with.
  • Health Professionals: Occupational health workers like physicians, nurses, hygienists, and safety officers evaluate workplace risks and worker health.
