A business that successfully controls and reduces workers’ compensation cost over time is a well-managed company.
Allied has adopted the insurance industry’s “Best Practices” in order to successfully control and reduce workers’ compensation costs.
The Best Business practices are those processes, systems, values, and programs a company employs to achieve profit while protecting its employees from work-related safety hazards. Allied uses methods to communicate, manage, and reward it employees that are directly related to good safety practices. The five business practices that are linked specifically to workers’ safety cost drivers are management, supervisory, human resources, training, and injury management.
Allied’s Safety Coordinator is responsible for identifying on-site safety, health hazards, safety training requirements, and for coordinating resources to correct those hazards. Resources available to the Safety Coordinator include the client owner and management, Allied Risk Management, Insurance Carrier Risk Management function, and other outsourced specialized resources as needed. Allied has established a written, comprehensive Loss Prevention Plan that can be modified to each of its client work locations. This plan will include hazard identification, training requirements, on-site inspection requirements, accident/incident investigation procedures, and substance abuse policy.

Allied’s Risk Management staff has over the years developed a network of specialists and care providers that are committed to rehabilitating injured employees and returning them back to the workforce. Our Risk Management staff is always on the alert for signs of abuse of the insurance programs that are designed to assist employees when they suffer a work-related injury. Our risk management staff will work with the employee, insurance claims manager, and client ownership to achieve the best possible outcome when an employee has a work-related injury claim.
