Getting your GRIP on Claims, Comp & Safety

You will be provided with strategies and tools necessary to be successful in the GRIP retrospective rating program. Industry experts will address keeping your workplace safe, keeping control of your workers' comp claims, and how to best reduce your workers' comp costs in the future. This is a great training for companies new to the group, as well as a refresher for established participants. Training is provided by Employer Resources Northwest (ERNwest), the third-party administrator of the GRIP program.

Incident Reporting & Accident Investigation

12:30–2 p.m.

Knowing about an injury when it happens and truly understanding what happened is paramount in keeping control of your claims and preventing similar injuries from occurring in the future. During this training, ERNwest's claim staff will talk about how simple it is to implement an injury reporting process into your business and what information ERNwest needs to help reduce the cost and duration of your claims at L&I. Plus, what you as an owner or supervisor need to know about every injury to keep your workplace safe.
