Members who were celebrating their 5 year, 10 year, 15 year, 20 year, 25 year, 30 year and 35 year anniversaries with WCTI were recognized.

Tom Simeone, the WCTI Chairperson, discussed when WCTI was formed and why WCTI is such a benefit to its members. A five-year history of membership, incident rate, loss ratio and capital surplus was also reviewed.

Bryan Webster, the WCTI Loss Control Committee Chairperson, discussed how members’ safety programs performed in 2016 and the loss control services that are available. He talked about the current focus of the Loss Control Committee and why it’s important for members to work together to create a safe work environment for their employees.

Dan Ugaste spoke about workers’ compensation reform which included past and possible future changes. He also spoke about the cost of workers’ compensation in Illinois as compared to other states.

Educational training sessions were provided and members could attend the following sessions which were Adjustment Bills, Workplace Violence, Litigated Claims, Member Refresher, MSAP or ICE-Internet Claims Edge.

Members who submitted their OSHA log showing no days away from work were given a No Lost Time Award. The Safety Award for Excellence was given to members with a loss ratio of less than 10%, an MSAP score of 90 or higher and an essay submitted from the Member to the WCTI Loss Control Committee. The Chairman’s Award was given to Phoenix Closures and Greene Welding.

Below are a few of the survey comments we’ve received from attendees:


Workplace Violence

Great speaker!

Given the topic, the humor was totally unexpected, but wow, it delivered a powerful message.


What a session!

The format — with Bill starting, then handing off to the roundtable panel, followed by the Q&A — kept it interesting, and offered lots of diverse viewpoints.

Adjustment Billing

Thank you!

We left this session with a much better understanding of the Adjustment process.
