INSTALLATION FECA Working Group:
The Installation Working Group consists of safety, civilian personnel, occupational health, resource management, legal, CIDC and others. It is chaired by the installation commander. The primary role is to review compensation cases, costs and accidents and to devise steps aimed at reducing the number of claims, costs and lost work time. Emphasis is placed on efforts to return injured employees to productive employment, to controvert questionable injury and occupational illness claims and to implement accident prevention initiatives.
Every installation must have a FECA Working Group, even if the annual program cost is less than one million dollars.
