For employers, workers compensation insurance coverage is all about controlling costs and effectively managing risks. No secret there. As critical as reducing the cost of workers compensation coverage is, however, many employers don’t participate as actively in making that happen as they could. In fact, many companies and organizations are either unaware of the many tools available to manage workers comp expenses or are unwilling or unable to devote the resources necessary to utilize those tools. Paying for workers comp coverage is a necessary and unavoidable cost of doing business; paying more than you should is not.
Here are some of the more effective tools available to control workers comp costs and effectively manage risks:

I can’t write about what I want to write about. so instead I’ve decided to busy my head with something completely different to distract myself.
I’m actually very interested in America. More specifically American lifestyle and politics. I feel as though it’s so refreshing compared to here in the UK. I think that’s because living here I’m surrounded by it all the time. My Facebook feed is people (mostly writers) who think they’re real life, flawless intellectuals when in reality they’re just ignorantly having incredibly strong, uneducated opinions on some new system or decision that bastard Cameron has made. Also just sharing article after article about some pointless political news bullshit with a comment of how ‘outraged’ they are.
I gave up a while back on trying to put my two pence in when it came to political themes arguments. I know this may seem very ‘quitter’-like but honestly I just don’t believe in armchair activists, can’t stand them. Paint a shitty placard and march next to them or shut up.

Over the course of the last almost 4 years, our President has tried to desperately sell the idea of universal healthcare to Americans through a little something called the Affordable Healthcare Act or more popularly known as Obamacare. The Affordable Healthcare Act, ACA, was described to us as something that would save the average America $2500 a year on their health insurance premiums. Oh and don’t forget that if you like your plan you can what….YOU CAN KEEP IT! Despite all of the issues there have been with implementing Obamacare, perhaps the most unsettling for Americans is that they quickly found out that if they liked their plan they could not and would not be able to keep it. Millions of people quickly found out that they would not be allowed to keep their current insurance plans. Most Americans who were already insured ended up paying twice what their original premium was in order to have a plan that wasn’t as good as the plan they’d had before. Americans were upset and voiced their frustrations by giving the President a 37% approval rating. So what happened?

through emergency room drain? That doesn’t sound personally responsible to me. It makes sense to have everyone purchase health insurance because if they don’t, that cost gets passed to everyone.
