An organization's human capital is its greatest asset. Solving the issues relative to work-related risk requires careful evaluation of workplace safety, workability following an accident, and compliance with new and ever-changing regulations. This program addresses these issues with particular emphasis on getting employees back to work after an on-the-job injury.

Employers have tremendous influence when it comes to controlling the exposure and costs associated with this particular risk. This course focuses on processes and techniques that can reduce the risk associated with workers, including statutory workers compensation, employer's liability, and employment practices liability.
