Commission on Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation Releases Annual Report

The CHSWC released the 2014 report on California’s Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation Systems on February 5, 2015. The commission releases this report annually and uses it as a way to make recommendations so the workers’ compensation system in California can work more smoothly. For 2014, it made several recommendations, including:

  • Encouraging legislation that reexamines worker’s compensation in the areas of return-to-work, permanent disability compensation, medical care quality, accessibility, timeliness, cost, and overall burden of dispute resolution
  • Evaluating medical care as it relates to SB 863, especially relating to networks, medical necessity determinations, fees, and medical evaluations
  • Continue to look for businesses that do not properly use the workers’ compensation program and those businesses who do not comply with health and safety laws
  • Continue to examine and correct for data deficiencies in workers’ compensation coverage
  • Promote the transparency and predictability of the Department of Insurance
  • Continue to support employees so that they have a safe working environment
  • Continue to train employees with the state-wide Worker Occupational Safety and Health Training and Education Program

CHSWC was created to examine the health and safety, and workers’ compensation programs for the state, and to create these types of recommendations so as to improve the workers’ compensation system overall. CHSWC does extensive studies every year on the current system and helps the system improve for the following year.
