The Department of Labor exists to ensure that those who are seeking employment or who are earning a living by working can work under safe and healthy work environments and the Office of Workers Compensation Programs exists to manage the many programs for injured workers to help them get the treatments and therapies that are needed and return to the workplace.
Any kind of workplace has risks that workers are subject. While many employers seek to minimize those risks, the sheer number of individuals in the workforce dictates that accidents will happen. The OWCP and the DOL work in tandem to ensure that risks are minimized and injuries are properly taken care.
While these government entities provide the resources and the oversight to help injured workers, it is the doctors who deal with patients in their day to day recovery and the doctors are an important part of navigating the paperwork of the workers compensation claims process.
