Reducing the frequency of workers’ compensation injuries and the severity of any injury is accomplished through various means such as on-site evaluations of safety risks, in-service classes, and specific issues assistance.
A professional survey of safety exposures is available to all members upon request. The survey is an on-site, non-punitive, multi-faceted survey that may be used as a tool to identify potential problems as well as areas for improvement in an existing program. A written report with our observations and suggestions is submitted within ten working days.
