Preventing Narcotics Abuse in Recovering Workers

After a serious on-the-job injury, workers can face a long and painful road to recovery. As an essential part of the recovery process, they are often prescribed narcotics to help manage their pain. While appropriate narcotic use can be extremely beneficial, abuse can lead to problems not just for the injured employee but also for you as the employer.

Older Americans continue to delay their retirement or reenter the workforce to supplement their income and combat the effects of a down economy. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of workers between the ages of 55 and 64 is estimated to climb to 29.3 million by 2020 and make up almost 18 percent of the labor force. This increase in older workers introduces the need to understand the risks associated with this age group, and as a result, effectively manage their potentially costly workers’ compensation claims.
