During the 2013 Public Risk Management (PRM) Annual Educational Conference, the City of Wauchula was presented an award for the “BEST OVERALL SAFETY PERFORMANCE”.
This award goes to the member with the greatest overall decrease in both frequency (number of claims) and severity (cost of claims). To be eligible, a PRM member must have all lines of coverage, receive the Workplace Safety Credit and utilize PRM Loss Prevention Services as well as have an active Safety Program.
Statistics based on staff analysis values as of 3/31/2013 show that the City of Wauchula’s Workers’ Compensation claims frequency was reduced by 50% and overall claims for all lines of coverage including workers' compensation were reduced by 69%.
Without the continuing effort of each City employee to maintain a safe working environment, it would not have been possible for the City of Wauchula to receive this award.
Thank you for all your hard work and safe work ethics.
