The team at Knight-Dik implemented a job safety education program aimed at both employees and supervisors. Education stressed how reducing injuries, and better management of those injuries, would result in significant cost-savings regarding its premiums. The landscaping company implemented a return-to-work program and job bank to bring injured employees back faster. Knight-Dik also worked with the client to obtain a better documentation system regarding working with contractors, as well as the company’s seasonal duties.
As result of the efforts of Knight-Dik, injuries went from an average of three to five per year, down to zero incidents. Along with the premium savings of $52,000 and the lowering of its experience MOD, the client was no longer being placed in a “high risk” category.
