In this episode, Christian Sison welcomes the employer’s perspective to the Third Fridays podcast. Christopher Lahey, a Senior Supervising Engineer from National Grid, starts a discussion about the issues involved when investigating alleged work accidents. Christopher talks about the types of injuries sustained by National Grid employees, and how the company puts its employees in the best position to return to full duty work.
Christian and Christopher engage each other in a debate involving the risk to an employer when an employee reports work accidents in an untimely manner. This is juxtaposed with the need to fulfill productivity goals upon which the employee is judged. The two also discuss safety measures that National Grid uses in order to meet accident and claim prevention goals.
Finally, Christopher takes his turn at the show’s “Guess the Outcome” segment, which is tailored directly to Christopher’s expertise in reporting work-related accidents. Download this episode to get a first-hand look at how an employer deals with various issues in Workers’ Compensation!
