Powerpoints on important aspects of workers’ compensation that front line supervisors’ need to understand

Unit VII PowerPoint Presentation

Many times the workers’ compensation coordinator is somewhere far away in another state, at the corporate office, or may even be a contracted service. For this exercise, your corporate office is located in Chicago, Il and you have a factory that is located in Oregon and another in Washington. The EH&S Manager is the most knowledgeable individual in the plant with regard to workers’ compensation and safety and health issues.

With these variables in mind, develop a PowerPoint for important aspects of workers’ compensation that front line supervisors’ need to understand. The assignment is flexible so that you may choose what you feel is most important to the supervisors of the company, but the following questions should be answered:

What are the key points every supervisor should know about the company’s workers’ compensation program or laws? What are the employees entitled to if they were to lose use of a limb, eye, or ability to work?
What if a company employee is brought in from another state?
What is an EMR, and how is it affected by incidents?

What are some of the different types of coverage available?
What are the record-keeping systems and reporting requirements?

Your PowerPoint presentation must be a minimum of 12 slides. Ensure the PowerPoint presentation has a title slide, an outline of topics to be discussed, and a reference slide at the end of the presentation. These slides do not count toward the 12-slide minimum. You must use a minimum of two resources in your presentation. Adhere to APA Style when constructing
