Choose your carrier wisely Not all carriers are created equally. Just as some agencies offer variations on the value add equation, some carriers make a name for themselves by offering consulting services such as loss control inspections, industry specific safety trainings and a host of after-injury protocols. When selecting a carrier, its critical to ask your agent what sets this company apart from the others.

Two identical injuries submitted to two different carriers could have vastly different outcomes in terms of length of time the claim stays open and how much is spent on medical, disability, and reserves. Best in class carriers do three things very well in the workers comp marketplace: they take the time to understand their insured industries and unique operations; they dont shy away from a fight over suspected fraud; and they do a better job than others of getting in front of the injured worker before the attorneys.

Experts in OSHA regulation say that the rollback of the rule could see employers hide injury data and recurring hazards from regulators, making it harder to identify problems at specific business and across wider industries. This is particularly troubling at shipyards where the injury-accident rate is around 80 percent that of construction and general industry, according to recent Labour statistic records. Between 2005 and 2015, for example, there were 76 deaths at private shipyards around the country. "This means that in the worst cases OSHA won't be able hoists to take enforcement action, and the employers are going to be able to keep doing what they are doing because there are no consequences," said Peg Seminario, Safety and Health director at AFL-CIO, a a national trade union center and the largest federation of unions in the United States. "It essentially takes away OSHA's ability to enforce patterns of record keeping violations, and what that means is that worse employers that have a pattern of hiding injuries or falsifying records will escape punishment." While the repeal means OSHA is unable to legally pursue accidents and incidents that occur at a company over six months later, the agency is still able to view all data going back five years.
