You can get a 3% discount off your premiums by enrolling in the ISSP (Industry Specific Safety Program) by May 25, 2012. The discount will be applied when you report your premiums online in August 2013.
You must complete an on-line safety assessment and then participate in 1, 2 or 3 safety activities, depending on the size of your payroll, as reported to the BWC 7/1/11-6/30/12. The activities include:
industry specific safety training (on-line or in person classes), and/or
on-site safety assessment, training or program development by the Division of Safety & Hygiene, and/or
attendance at the yearly Safety Congress & Expo (usually in March)
If you already have to take safety training, e.g., you had one or more claims filed in the past 2 years, you can use the same training for both purposes. Just make sure the training is listed for ISSP.
All other discounts in the Destination: Excellence programs are available to you, except group retro, individual retro, large deductible or small deductible programs.
As always, if you pay the minimum $50 premium every 6 months, no discounts apply.
