Critical Incident Stress Debriefing Helps Your Employees Cope with Workplace Accidents and Injuries

In the aftermath of a workplace accident, injury or other trauma, employees may struggle with depression or other feelings that make it hard to return to normal. Crisis counseling can be an effective, empathetic way to help employees cope with disruptive events.

Crisis counseling for Nationwide customers

Nationwide partners with CorVel® to help employees restore morale and get back to work. Providing aid to workers after a crisis may significantly benefit your business, in terms of productivity and reduction in additional claims. Plus, it's simply the right thing to do.

CorVel services are designed to help your employees in the event of any harm, including:

  • Amputations
  • Blindness
  • Crushing injuries or multiple broken bones
  • Electrical shock
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Thermal or chemical burns

Staff members who witness a fatality or traumatic injury also may receive support through this program.

How it works

CorVel provides an initial critical incident stress debriefing session for an individual or a group after a covered claim. Nationwide absorbs the cost of that debriefing session. Sessions may be conducted at a home, hospital or job site. Your management team will be informed of issues that may affect attendance as well as other identified needs.

The claims adjuster coordinates the scheduling of the session with the customer, or sometimes the customer will call CorVel directly.
