SLIP & FALL
The Safety and Risk Manager requests guidance from their Corporate Medical Advisor to discuss follow-up actions for an employee who reported an unwitnessed fall at work. He had immediate access to onsite occupational medical evaluation and required no medical treatment or work restrictions. The employee advised his supervisor that his personal health care provider has ordered an MRI and has scheduled rotator cuff surgery. The supervisor asked Safety and Risk for help.
Corporate Medical Advisors can help with:
Guidelines on evidence-based management
- Worker’s Compensation insurance guidance.
Fitness for duty and return to work
- Determine which employees not be allowed to re-enter the workplace.
- Provide expertise for appropriateness of medical treatment.
