Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features Out Front Ideas’ announcement of its next free webinar, noting that in 2017, there were 16 weather and climate disaster events with losses exceeding $1 billion each across the United States, with an impact that goes way beyond property damage.
Out Front Ideas noted that natural disasters can actually have a big impact on workers’ compensation and healthcare systems, including the risks faced by first responders, the disruption to the workforce and challenges to the benefit delivery system. In the webinar experts will discuss how crucial disaster planning is to help alleviate these challenges, the ways events can disrupt the workers’ compensation system, the personal and work-related impact on employees, the ripple effect to vendors and supply chains, and the many complications associated with medical treatment delays. The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, February 13 at 11am CT.
