EMS is an inherently risky profession. As a result, EMS employees suffer a higher incidence of work-related injuries than do employees in other professions. Most EMS agencies are already struggling with recruiting and retaining employees and cannot afford to lose their existing employees to work-related injuries. EMS leaders must work to minimize the risks inherent in delivery care by thoroughly investigating every work-related injury by collecting critical information about each injury from both the injured employee and the investigating supervisor.
The EMS Work Injury Management Packet contains a Work Injury Management Plan that has been successful in reducing both the incidence and cost per claim in an EMS setting. Additionally, this includes EMS specific Work Injury and Investigation Forms and a Pamphlet that contains important information about the claims process and their obligations during the course of the injury.
