EOLWD's Fiscal Year 2019 Performance

Department of Industrial Accidents

FY19 Metric FY19 Target FY19 Current Performance
Waiting times from Conciliation to Conference in the dispute resolution process Maintain the waiting times below 12 weeks for 2019. The wait times have crept up over the past six months due to some judges on medical leave, a vacant position and other scheduling considerations.  We are working on getting back on target.
Launch document upload project. The document upload project will allow attorneys to submit larger sized documents to the DIA for the Conference stage of the dispute resolution process.  For Fiscal Year 2019, we will expand to full implementation with a target of 1,100 documents uploaded per month on average. (This will later be expanded to Conciliation and Hearing which could eventually mean between 3,000 to 5,000 documents uploaded per month by FY 2020.)   The goal of increasing the number of documents uploaded is on track to make 1,100 per month. However, increasing these numbers relies on the completion of the DIA Cloud Migration project which is due to be completed by May 2019.
Streamline the approval process for Workplace Safety Training Grants. By fast tracking the approval process we should be able to cut the approval time to less than 2 months permanently. The Office of Safety and the Contracts & Procurement Department transitioned the contract approval process from a job function to seeing consistent improvement by streamlining the process in a cross-functional team focused way. We are on target to maintain the 2 month time-frame.
Maintain or lower DIA assessment rate. Our target assessment rate for Fiscal Year 2019 will be 4.56% or lower.  The Office of Safety and the Contracts & Procurement Department transitioned the contract approval process from a job function to seeing consistent improvement by streamlining the process in a cross-functional team focused way. We are on target to maintain the 2 month time-frame.
