Understanding the workers’ compensation process and what is required of the employer, employee and MCIT can seem daunting. But it doesn’t have to be. This workshop presented in three locations during October provides the information members need to know to ensure that the claim process runs smoothly for everyone.

The workshop is designed for human resources, administrators, department heads and supervisors.


  • Understanding and Creating an Efficient Claim Process, presented by MCIT staff: This session explains what happens after an employee is injured on the job. It includes how members need to report claims to MCIT, key deadlines, the incident investigation process and accurately paying wage benefits.

  • Tips for Conducting Employee Accident Investigations, presented by MCIT staff: Discovering causes of accidents is key to preventing future incidents. This session reviews tips for making internal employee investigations successful.

  • Common Workplace Musculoskeletal Injuries: Effects of Life Cycle and Medical Conditions, presented by MCIT staff: How well and quickly individuals can recover from and return to work after common musculoskeletal injuries can depend on compounding factors, such as age and other medical conditions. Understanding this can help employers support employees in their recovery and returning to work.

  • Getting Back to Work: Strategies for a Successful Program, presented by MCIT staff: Developing a successful program for injured/ill employees to remain working during and after recovery benefits both the employee and employer. This session offers strategies for developing a successful program.

  • How PTSD Differs from Other Psychological Conditions, presented by MCIT staff: This session explains post-traumatic stress disorder and how it differs from other psychological conditions, as well as addresses how workers’ compensation may apply.

  • The Importance of the Trauma-informed Workplace, presented by Sand Creek staff: Given the number of county-level jobs that can encounter traumatic circumstances, such as law enforcement and social services, it is important for members to understand trauma and how to respond to it in the workplace. This presentation defines a trauma-informed workplace and explains how to achieve it.
