How the City of Farmington Hills is keeping workers’ compensation costs low by making safety a priority.

We want to acknowledge the City of Farmington Hills for receiving the Michigan Municipal League Workers’ Compensation Loss Control Achievement Award. This has been given to the City 17 times over the past 21 years.

Several of our lawyers live in Farmington Hills and our main office is also located in this community. We are thrilled to see the City taking workers’ compensation issues seriously.

According to its 2013 Annual Report mailed to residential customers, Farmington Hills had low workers’ compensation claims and the best safety record in the State.

Safety not profits

Farmington Hills attributes its success to providing employees with the resources needed to be safe on the job and having a committee review each incident to offer recommendations for improvement.

“Being serious about safety produces low claims, saves tax dollars, and lowers costs compared to other cities for workers’ compensation insurance.”

The City also offers a wellness program with over 60% employee participation. We have blogged in the past about how wellness programs actually reduce workers’ compensation costs. Healthier people tend to file less claims and get back to work sooner.

Demographics

Farmington Hills is the second largest city in Oakland County. It has a total population of 80,910 with 33,805 households. Thousands of people work in the City each day. Many in high risk jobs including manufacturing and health care.

Smaller communities and private employers would be wise to adopt a similar focus on safety. We see too many people get injured simply because management tried to save a few dollars. There is simply no excuse!
