The board of directors of the Chesapeake Employers’ Insurance Company is pleased to declare a $20 million corporate dividend to qualifying policyholders who have contributed to the company’s financial success. Ten million dollars a year will be paid out over two consecutive years beginning with July 1, 2018, renewal quotes.

“Those who will receive a dividend are qualifying policyholders whose loss ratio proves they are committed to workplace safety, preventing injuries, and helping employees return to work,” said Chesapeake Employers’ president and CEO, Tom Phelan. “More than 20,000 Maryland policyholders will receive a portion of the $10 million dividend for their 2017 performance. Their commitment to safety has contributed to our success, and we’re delighted to share our success with them. After all, keeping workers safe on the job and preventing accidents is worth rewarding.”

 

Dividends are based on performance and are not guaranteed. The corporate dividend was approved by the Maryland Insurance Administration.

MINNESOTA

SFM Foundation Celebrates 10th Anniversary
SFM Foundation marks an important milestone this year, celebrating a decade of service to families whose lives have been impacted by workplace injuries.

In its first 10 years, the Foundation has provided post-secondary scholarships for 129 students whose parents were severely injured or killed on the job. Scholarships awarded by the Foundation to date total $1.4 million.

SFM Foundation began in 2008, with a group of employees of SFM Mutual Insurance looking for a way to ease the burdens on families affected by workplace accidents. In its first year, organizers established a scholarship program and held a golf tournament to raise funds for qualified applicants. The golf event was planned and staffed exclusively by volunteers and supported entirely by donations from sponsors. The event was an immediate success, setting the tone for what has become an annual tradition.

“When we first got started, we were looking for a way to help students overcome financial barriers standing in the way of their goals,” said SFM Foundation President Dave Kaiser. “Ten years down the road, we’re making a real difference for these families and helping students achieve their dreams.”

Since that first summer, the Minnesota “Golfing for Scholarships” event has grown into one of the top charity golf events in the state, typically selling out well in advance. The Foundation has since added a second annual golf event in Iowa. Fundraising now continues throughout the year, with growing support from throughout the workers’ compensation community.

“The success of the Foundation has exceeded our wildest expectations,” said Dave Kaiser. “It’s been an honor and a privilege to help these families throughout the years, and we look forward to helping many more in the future.”

About the SFM Foundation
The SFM Foundation was created in 2008 by SFM Companies, a regional workers’ compensation insurer headquartered in Bloomington, Minnesota. While SFM remains a major sponsor of the Foundation, the vast majority of scholarships are awarded to the families of injured workers who are insured by other carriers. The Foundation currently operates in Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin. For more information, visit sfmfoundation.com.

SFM Foundation is an affiliate of Kids’ Chance of America in Iowa and Minnesota. Kids’ Chance is a national nonprofit that creates, assists, and supports organizations across the United States that provide educational opportunities and scholarships to the children of workers who were seriously injured or killed on the job. For more information, visit kidschance.org.

 

MONTANA

New Policy and Billing System
In August 2017, Montana State Fund (MSF) launched a project to implement Guidewire’s PolicyCenter, BillingCenter, ProducerEngage, and CustomerEngage Portals. These components of Guidewire are being added to ClaimCenter, which MSF implemented in 2005.

With the new policy and billing system, MSF will serve our agents and policyholders in a way that supports their needs by providing access to information more efficiently. Agents will have the ability to go online, obtain a quote, submit an application, and, in some cases, issue the policy while their customer is sitting right there with them. Our goal is to equip our agents and policyholders with the right information at the right time to meet their needs.

In addition to implementing the new software, MSF is taking advantage of this opportunity to review many of our business practices via industry research. We are reaching out to our agency partners, sister funds, and national carriers to analyze how we interact with our agents and policyholders and where we can make changes to our current practices to align with the industry and make our processes work better for our agents and customers. Our continual focus is on enhancing the customer experience via design of the system to support ease of doing business with MSF.

The project will be a multiyear effort, conducted in phases, with the initial implementation planned for late 2019.

Medical Conference Slated
MSF will host its 18th annual medical conference in Helena from Thursday, May 31 through Friday, June 1, 2018. The theme for this year’s event is “Evidence Based Medicine: New Opportunities to Improve Outcomes.” Topics at the one-and-a-half-day conference include Lumbar Fusion in Workers' Compensation; Hot Clinical Topics: CRPS, PTSD, Concussion; The Ethical Dilemma: Patient Advocacy and Medical Science; Epidemiology in the Courtroom; and more.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) and other continuing education credits are available. The event is open to the public. Legal, medical, and workers’ compensation claims professionals are encouraged to attend. Anyone interested can find out more details at montanastatefund.com.

OHIO

BWC’s New Safety Campaign
BWC kicked off a new safety campaign in March to make Ohioans think about their own behavior when it comes to safety. The safety campaign asks, “If you don't care about your safety, who will?"

The goal of the campaign, announced last year as part of our $44 million safety pledge, is to educate all Ohioans on ways to avoid slips, trips, falls, overexertions, and driving related accidents, which cause more than 60 percent of workplace disabling injuries.

The humorous TV spot and online videos with short safety messages are available on BWC’s YouTube channel.

Opioid Dependence Among Injured Workers Continues to Fall
BWC has another update on its work to reduce opioid abuse and misuse in Ohio’s workers’ compensation system: the number of opioid-dependent injured workers fell another 19 percent in 2017.

BWC pharmacy director Nick Trego reported the number of injured workers who met or exceeded the threshold of being clinically dependent on opioids fell to 3,315 at the end of fiscal year 2017. That’s a 19-percent drop from 2016 and a 59-percent decrease since 2011.

“That means 4,714 fewer injured workers at risk for opioid addiction, overdose and death than in 2011,” said Trego.

BWC Expands Grant Program for Firefighter Safety
Due to heavy demand, BWC recently expanded funding for a new grant program aimed at protecting firefighters from carcinogens and other toxins that cause long-term health ailments.

BWC had originally allotted $2 million this year for its Firefighter Exposure to Environmental Elements Grant Program, but as of February, BWC had received 444 grant applications seeking nearly $4.7 million in funding.

“When we call firefighters for help, they’re at our door as fast as humanly possible,” said BWC administrator/CEO Sarah Morrison. “It’s only right that we do the same when they need equipment critical to their health and safety. We want every qualifying fire department that applies for these grants to get their funds as soon as possible.”

From left, Deputy Chief Ohio State Fire Marshal Bill Spurgeon, Genoa Township Fire Chief Gary Honeycutt, and BWC Administrator/CEO Sarah Morrison.

Private Employer Rates Will Fall 12 Percent
Already at a 40-year low, workers’ compensation premium rates for Ohio private employers will fall an additional 12 percent beginning July 1.

The cut will save private employers $163.5 million over this year’s premiums.

BWC administrator/CEO Sarah Morrison attributes the agency’s ability to reduce rates to many factors, including slow growth in medical inflation, fewer claims, a changing workforce, and safer workplaces.

BWC Introduces New Wellness Program
BWC rolled out a new free wellness program on February 1 called Better You, Better Ohio! The program offers a variety of resources to help workers track their diets, quit smoking, get in shape, and manage chronic diseases, such as obesity and diabetes.

The program targets workers at small Ohio employers (50 or fewer workers) in industries that experience higher injury rates on average than others.

Employees approved through a registration process receive a $75 gift card after undergoing a health risk assessment and biometric screening. Participants will then have access to digital coaching, educational materials, wellness tracking tools, a mobile app, and other resources.

SAIF Renovation Wraps Up First Phase
This month, employees at our headquarters in Salem are moving into a fully renovated building after two years of construction. The renovation was needed to bring the building up to current codes and standards, and we are proud to share that the project was finished on time and on budget. A second building on our campus will receive additional updates, including health and wellness facilities to support our efforts in Total Worker Health. The full project will be completed in 2019.

Workplace Guidance for Distracted Driving
Just in time for distracted driving month, SAIF released guidance to employers on how they can help reduced motor vehicle accidents caused by distracted driving.

“I know I’m legally not supposed to check my phone while I’m driving,” said Leigh Manning, senior safety management consultant at SAIF. “But if my boss called, and I didn’t know what the expectations were, I would be tempted to pick up.”

SAIF also released a video to remind employers to set expectations about safe driving.

Cooking Up Kitchen Safety Content
The restaurant industry has among the highest number of injuries per employee in Oregon. To help address safety hazards, SAIF released "Kitchen Safety Showdown," a video series featuring two chefs squaring off on safety precautions in the kitchen. The video is available in English and Spanish.

More information can be found at saif.com/kitchensafety.

Hosting Agents at Oregon’s Workers’ Comp Seminar

SASKATCHEWAN

Saskatchewan WCB Releases 2017 Operating Results

  • WCB remains fully funded at 117.8 percent.
  • Record number of Saskatchewan workers covered—423,527.
  • Time-loss injury rate remains constant at 1.86.
  • 88 percent of Saskatchewan employers achieved Mission: Zero.

The Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB)’s 2017 Annual Report was recently tabled in the Saskatchewan legislature. The report indicated that the WCB remains fully funded with the ability to cover claims costs.

The past year marked the second year in a row that 88 percent of Saskatchewan employers achieved zero injuries. The total injury rate in Saskatchewan continues to fall. The total injury rate dropped from 5.55 in 2016 to 5.25 in 2017. Over the last decade, the total injury rate in the province has decreased by 48.6 percent.

The 2017 time-loss injury rate per 100 workers remained the same as 2017 at 1.86. The WCB is concerned with the leveling off of the time loss injury rate, the first year in the past 14 years that it has not seen a reduction in this metric. Saskatchewan had the third highest time-loss injury rate in Canada in 2016, according to the Association of Workers’ Compensation Boards in Canada (AWCBC).

Unfortunately, there were 27 workplace fatalities in Saskatchewan in 2017. While the number of 2017 fatalities decreased from 31 fatalities in 2016, this number is still critically high. It is unacceptable for anyone to lose their life or get injured at work.

The WCB will continue working with employers, workers, and partners until zero injuries in Saskatchewan is achieved.

The WCB will provide details of its 2017 performance at the AGM scheduled for May 2 and 3.

Saskatchewan WCB’s Annual Compensation Institute Brings Workplace Issues to the Forefront
Each year, the WCB holds Compensation Institute—a free, interactive conference to learn from and educate Saskatchewan workers and employers on the province’s compensation system and to address current workplace health and safety issues. The Saskatchewan WCB is the only WCB in Canada that holds a free event like this.

The 21st annual event was recently held in Regina, Saskatchewan. It featured several world-class guest speakers. Each year, the topics are determined by attendee feedback. More than 440 people attended the two-day conference in 2018.

As the workforce continues to change in Saskatchewan, new challenges also arise. This year, the WCB explored issues such as workplace preparations for the 2018 legalization of cannabis in Canada, the key elements of a violence prevention program, and awareness of mental health safety issues and how to deal with them.

In March 2018, WorkSafe Saskatchewan, a partnership between the WCB and the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, launched a psychological health section on its website that includes available resources to help promote a psychologically healthy workplace. It can be accessed at http://www.worksafesask.ca/mentalhealth/.

 

UTAH

New Name, Same Owners
Utah’s legislature passed Workers’ Compensation Fund Revisions–SB 192 in February 2017. The bill outlined the process for WCF to separate from state control, by repealing its enabling legislation and becoming a mutual insurance corporation, beginning January 1, 2018.

 This bill was the last legislative step in a multiyear process of transitioning WCF to a mutual insurance corporation that is wholly owned by its policyholders. This step in WCF’s evolution is important because it now gives WCF the flexibility to evolve in ways that were not possible with the statutory limitations that existed in the past.

 Because of the change in legislation, WCF is legally required to incorporate the word “mutual” in the company name. Our new name as of January 1, 2018, is WCF Mutual Insurance Company. We will continue doing business as WCF Insurance.
