There is an increase in claims following accidents and the downturn in the economy has not curbed that trend. Organisations and safety practitioners need to know how to tackle them as they can result in spiraling costs including higher insurance premiums. Knowing how to manage both accidents and compensation can help control this trend.
At the briefing you will find out:
- Why do many firms lose compensation cases by default
- How personal injury claims directly affect your insurance premium
- Why accidents need to be fully investigated
- How to investigate an accident
- How to stop claims being made against your company
- How injury claims should be handled to minimise costs
- Some answers to your questions

NISO Southern Region is inviting members of NISO in the south to encourage an employee of their organisation interested in health and safety to join the Committee as a volunteer.
It is a good way to develop new skills, meet and build contacts with like minded professionals, lobby the government or other health and safety stakeholders or simply develop knowledge and learn from the experienced practitioners already on the committee. If this is of interest, please contact Michael O’Neill, the south region chairman, on 086 2427566 or speak to him on the night.
