Safety Tips—Members Only
I first started working with WCTI in 1994. Back then, I was new to worker’s comp issues, but I could count on WCTI to help our injured employees and to help me with claims reporting. It wasn’t until our company left WCTI, that I learned to truly appreciate the value of a knowledgable claim consultant. Thankfully, we are now back as a member of the Trust; my job is a lot easier, and our people are a lot happier!
The WCTI philosophy is to identify and eliminate risk, so the plant does not have the injury in the first place. When risk and injuries are reduced, it’s easy to manage workers’ comp because there isn’t a claim to manage. When an injury or illness does occur, WCTI provides outstanding service to both the injured employee and to the company
Historically we had good loss control experience but we were lacking a formal safety program. WCTI/CCMSI has individuals with practical knowledge that were able to assist in expanding the scope of our safety program. Through the help and guidance of the loss control committee, specifically, Diane and Meredith, we have developed a thorough safety program, increased employee awareness and created a safer work environment.
