Injury Management

Injury Management

Working with your internally-designated injury management personnel (or in an outsourced capacity), we facilitate commercial control of your injuries and claims to achieve a significant reduction in current and future claims costs, with the following objectives:

  • Introduce and sustain positive and proactive injury management systems and procedures to ensure maximum care of injured workers and minimum workers’ compensation costs and exposures;
  • Identify and mitigate injury risk exposures arising from both work-related and non-work-related injuries and illness;
  • Early intervention to maximise return to work outcomes and minimise lost time;
  • Exert management influence over third-party providers to control their additional costs;
  • Develop innovative solutions to address difficult cases; and
  • Advise on compliance requirements to workers’ compensation legislation, and ensure thorough understanding and protection from fines and penalties that could result from non-compliance.

 

How do we reduce the cost of injury? Well, it’s through a combination of things but ultimately, it’s about understanding your business and its people. Something we do very well.

“Aurenda understands our business in its totality and the unique issues that we face which varies across all states. They offer us a huge amount of support and they listen, that’s why we’ve built such a great working partnership.

They act as our advocate and as such Aurenda is prepared to challenge the status quo to protect us, whilst making sure our people get the very best care. They remove any need to worry about injury management, they look after our employees and save us money.
