Workers’ compensation injury claims of aviation industry worker injuries in Alaska, 2014–2015

Alaska's aviation operations in Alaska often occur in remote locations and during inclement weather. Some locations lack sufficient infrastructure and staff are often dependent on aviation employees to perform duties outside of their regular job descriptions, which can be difficult. Researchers established staff's compensation claims as a valuable data source to characterize nonfatal injuries among Alaskan aviation workers. During 2014–2015, keyword searches of injury claim narrative fields and industry codes were used to identify potentially aviation-related workers' compensation claims.

Guideline adherence and lost workdays for acute low back pain in the California workers' compensation system.

In the first week of therapy for a first low back pain injury resulting in missed workdays, it was determined how to determine the effect of adherence to guideline-recommended therapies. Methods In a retrospective series of California's workers' compensation claims data from May 2009 to May 2018, 41 diagnostic and therapeutic interventions were abstracted from the medical claims for workers with acute LBP injuries, which were compared to guideline recommendations. Both recommended and non-recommended interventions were received in the first week of therapy. 14. 2% of workers received only approved interventions, 14. 6% received only non-recommended procedures, and 51. 1% received both recommended and non-recommended interventions. Workers who received only guideline-recommended interventions saw a significant decrease in lost workdays, a 29. 3% decrease, than those who received only non-recommended services. Over the nine years, the percentage of employees receiving only approved services increased from 10. 3% to 18. 2%.
