Abstract:


A multifaceted disability management program was instituted at an automotive manufacturing organization to control rising workers' compensation costs. A pilot program showed major cost savings over a 9-month period. When total and component disability leave rates were calculated as a percentage of the available workforce and tracked on a weekly basis over the subsequent 3 years, total disability leave rates fell by nearly 50 %.

This was largely attributable to an approximately 50 % decrease in the extended (> 1-year) disability leave rate and a 75 % decrease in the workers' compensation leave rate. A novel approach to biostatistical analysis showed a good fit of weekly disability leave rates to a Poisson random variable distribution with an identifiable break point at about 1 1/2 years after observation for extended disability leaves and at 2 years for workers' compensation leaves. This biostatistical approach may prove generalizable to tracking leave rates in other organizations.
