University of California Chooses Remedy Interactive's Injury Prevention Software to Decrease Workers' Compensation Claims and Lost Work Days

SAUSALITO, CA--(Marketwire - May 7, 2008) - As part of its commitment to employee wellness, University of California has selected Remedy Interactive Inc. to help reduce the number of workplace injuries, workers' compensation claims and lost work days among staff members. Remedy Interactive is a leading provider of enterprise solutions that help large organizations prevent workplace injuries and reduce workers' compensation costs. After an initial pilot project with its Office of the President, the organization signed a system-wide three-year contract to roll out Remedy Interactive's enterprise injury prevention software to a broader employee population in 2008.

With 170,000 faculty and staff spread out over 19 campuses, medical centers and labs and offices, the University of California school system is one of the largest in the nation. Prior to working with Remedy Interactive, each campus managed its health and safety programs independently, making it difficult for the University of California to track employee safety, maintain consistent processes, and share best practices across all of its campuses. The organization also needed a proactive consolidated system that allowed managers to assess and analyze risks of injury and lost work day drivers to improve operational processes and safety program efficiencies.

In August 2003, University of California's Office of the President first implemented Remedy Interactive's OES, a flexible web-based solution that uses business process automation to drive injury prevention programs, at two campuses: U.C. San Diego and U.C. Irvine. Due to the success of this installation, University of California will implement Remedy Interactive's OES to 60,000 employees on additional campuses and offices throughout the state of California.

"University of California is committed to making wellness a priority and protecting its most important asset -- its employees," said Joe S. Adams II CSP, Director of Environment, Health & Safety, University of California Office of the President. "We chose Remedy Interactive and the OES for our system-wide injury prevention solution because it met our strict health and safety program goals, and now has become a key factor in improving employee wellness and reducing risk."

"Long term customers like University of California understand the correlation between employee health, and workers' compensation claims and cost reduction," said Kim Lopez, CEO of Remedy Interactive. "We look forward to further demonstrating that the longer companies focus on proactive risk reduction in their workplace, the more they'll be able to prevent workplace injuries and decrease their operational costs."
