Special Group Rating Safety Training Program
Group Rated employers who have had a claim between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010 are required to complete two hours safety training by June 30, 2011. The BWC’s requirement applies to any claim an employer had within the past two years, regardless of size or severity. Two hours is the minimum amount of safety training mandated. If an employer has multiple policy numbers, they must attend two hours of safety training per policy.
Todd Smith, Safety & Risk Consultant, RiskControl360, will explain how employers can reduce risk and improve compliance through an effective safety and health program; establishing workplace safety trends; and understanding the workers’ compensation claims process.
