Debra Livingston will join panelists at the Florida RIMS in Naples on July 31st for a discussion on “Innovative Strategies for Aligning Workers Compensation & Disability Management.”

Debra will join panelists from Advanced Disposal Services Inc., Willis Towers Watson, and Gallagher Bassett to discuss workers’ compensation, ADA compliance, and return-to-work solutions that positively impact business and their employees.

The session will begin at 10:45 a.m. and will provide an overview of innovative approaches being implemented to improve the outcomes of Workers’ Compensation and Disability Management Programs. Panel participants will discuss current trends with absence management programs, early intervention programs, and alternative return-to-work programs like Transition2Work® through ReEmployAbility.

ReEmployAbility’s return-to-work program, Transition2Work, offers employers and carriers a cost-effective solution to modified light duty assignments, reducing claim costs while giving the injured worker time to heal. Utilizing an accredited, national network of more than 35,000 nonprofit partners, ReEmployAbility accommodates injured workers across the nation in the transition back to work. During their temporary volunteer assignment at a nonprofit in their community, injured workers become reacquainted with the work experience, while boosting their self-confidence, improving their sense of worth, and keeping in touch with the daily work routine.

The 44th annual Florida RIMS Educational Conference will be held July 30th – August 3rd at the Ritz-Carlton in Naples, Florida. The conference includes an array of risk-related conference sessions throughout the week. Visit for more information or to register to attend.
