Employers Need to Take Responsibility for Workplace Safety As Part of Cost Control

Posted by Paul J. Antonowicz

Below is a link to an insightful commentary on the responsibility employers have to control the cost of their Workers' Comp insurance. I have also seen the failure of employers to do anything other than hire an outside company to handle claims, but take no steps to prevent claims in the first place or worse have the only thing they do be to discourage people from filing legitimate claims. If there is any truth to claims of "out of control" and rising Workers' Compensation costs, perhaps a big part of the solution is for employers to take a look in the mirror and fix safety and training issues in the workplace.
