AGCW Group Retro recognizes member success – AGC of Washington’s Group Retro top performers with zero injuries have netted workers-compensation premium refunds of 49%, 50% and 58% in the three years in cycle this year.
“What is particularly impressive is that half the group is earning refunds of 50% or more in the most recent year, while 85% have rates lower than average to offset losses,” beamed Lauren Gubbe, program director. “It is the longstanding continuous efforts in promoting an inclusive teamwork safety culture on jobsites, and in offering light-duty accommodation to injured workers, that are keys to both maximizing refunds and lowering premium rates for companies and employees.”
AGCW is proud to recognize these companies for achieving the lowest experience modification (EMR) rate; “As Low As You Can Go” status at .60; being at or over a 25% decrease in EMR, and refund milestone performance awards.
