WE CAN’T DO THIS
ALONE – AGENCIES AND OWCP MUST WORK TOGETHER TO DELIVER THE FECA PROGRAM
SHARE has almost
all of us on the same page, and that’s very positive.
Here are the four SHARE
goals, just for those who may be new to the biz.
After a slow start in 04
and 05 – injuries have declined each year.
In fact, the number of
injuries reported to OWCP has declined to a point not seen in the program
since before the 1974
Almost all agencies reducing injuries
injury rates are even more important – the serious injuries account for a huge
percentage of costs and trauma.
after stumbling out of the gate, since 2006 the story is VERY POSITIVE.
More of a mixed bag here – if Homeland Security hadn’t reduced their lost
time rate so much, the govt. as a whole might not have met the goal.
performance has been excellent from the beginning on Goal 3 – timely filing of
plateaued a bit – once you improve, it’s harder to squeeze out more
improvement in this regard. But we’re
still failing on nearly ONE-THIRD of all new claims – and that’s not good
NOTE here: POSTAL SERVICE is at 93%, as Vicki said –
using SNAIL MAIL!! The rest of us need
to meet that challenge!
exceeding USPS’s excellent results; USDA needs to get moving to meet the
injuries, faltered initially but started meeting the goal in 2006 – note
tremendous performance so far in 2007!
This is a key
measure, and it SHOULD be possible to drive it down a lot further. Still losing almost a half day of
productivity PER EMPLOYEE due to new injuries each year – much higher in
some agencies. And this stat
doesn’t count days lost AFTER the first year beyond the injury.
Must continue to
eliminate injuries, and get people back to work earlier, to reduce LPDs.
continue to rise, but our many initiatives hold costs under the inflation rate
for medical services as a whole.
WE ARE MAKING
STEADY PROGRESS IN GETTING PEOPLE BACK TO WORK – BUT THE TOTAL NUMBER ON THE
LONG TERM ROLL IS STILL VERY HIGH.
