Our goal is to help you understand your workers' compensation insurance structure and to gauge the impact of your site or workplace safety efforts or failures on your bottom line. We prefer to work and coordinate our efforts with your broker so they can obtain the best possible safety management quote for your company.
Submission of Information for Underwriters
A standard function of our safety management service is to provide your insurance broker with a summary report of your future safety plans as well as your past efforts. We can detail how your company plans to reduce or eliminate sources of past claims as well as efforts to monitor progress. This report can be used as part of the submittals that your insurance broker delivers to the underwriters and should greatly assist your broker in negotiating the most favorable rates for you.

Measure Safety Progress:
You Need to Measure the Value of your Safety Dollar Expenditure. Companies must measure their progress to understand the benefits derived from their investment in operating a safe business. Amerisafe will set up a matrix to help you measure your progress. We accomplish this by:
- Performing a workplace site safety assessment review of the operations, including identification of all inherent hazards as well as observable potential hazards.
- Conducting a review of insurance costs and workers' compensation claims; we can even arrange for audits of your workers' compensation history. This is done on a contingent fee basis and includes a fee only if there are historical recoverable savings found.
Reviewing probability, frequency of occurrence and severity of each potential injury. Historical accident and cost data are then reviewed and compared with these assessments. Targets and goals are then established for each type of potential hazard or injury utilizing corrective training, introduction of safety products, or engineered safety design. These increased training, product and engineering costs are then compared to the anticipated savings that will result from an improved safety record. After this matrix is finished, it is tracked to verify that the intended results are actually obtained.
