Employer Services Specialists (ESSs) research information and recommend strategies to reduce employer costs. In addition, they make referrals to safety professionals to provide employers with on-site assistance.
Your ESS can give you detailed information on how BWC determines your rates. The ESS can review how claims, settlements, handicap reimbursements and return-to-work programs affect your premiums. Additionally, your ESS can help with payroll reporting and true-up concerns, interpreting account status billings and assigned classifications.
Work-related injuries occur even in the safest workplaces. Controlling costs of claims once an injury occurs is essential to keeping premium costs low. Your ESS can help you design a cost-efficient workers’ compensation program that meets your needs.
We offer rating programs focusing on claims prevention and claims cost control efforts for employers to encourage a focus on safety. Our bonus and rebate programs focus on return-to-work for injured workers, efficient management of accounts and cost control efforts for employers, and streamlining of BWC processes and requirements to encourage an employer's focus on safety.
