Safety Council participation cuts workers’ comp rate
The enrollment period deadline is July 31 for new Safety Council members interested in qualifying for a rebate up to 4 percent on workers’ compensation premiums. The rebate offer excludes self-insuring employers or state agencies.
Employers must meet all rebate program eligibility requirements to be eligible for any rebate. Employers not in a group-experience or group-retrospective program can earn a 2 percent participation rebate for meeting eligibility requirements and an additional 2 percent performance bonus rebate for reducing frequency or severity by 10 percent or remain at zero.
Employers enrolled in a group-experience program qualify only for calculation of the 2 percent performance bonus rebate. Employers enrolled in a group-retrospective program qualify only for a 2 percent participation rebate.
To receive a 2 percent rebate, local companies must meet four criteria:
- Join the Highland-Fayette-Clinton Safety Council no later than July 31.
- Send a representative to at least 10 meetings between July 1, 2019, and June 30, 2020. Meetings always include lunch and a 40- to 45-minute safety-related program.
- Submit two safety reports for the 2019 calendar year.
- Have the chief executive officer (or highest-ranking on-site management person) attend one meeting between July 1, 2019, and June 30, 2020.
