In Ohio and nationally, experts are reporting that the unemployment rate is decreasing. Further, the number of job openings is increasing. With returning employees and hiring new employees, employers are at a risk for increased workers’ compensation claims. Although we generally presume that workers who change employment are at a higher risk for injuries, re-hired employees may also pose safety concerns when returning to their former employers after an extended time away from the job. As a result, it is equally important for employers to pay attention to safety training for new employees as well as re-hired employees. Training not only on how to perform the job, but basic safety precautions may assist an employer in reducing its further workers’ compensation claims.
