Loss Control Incentive Program

In FY2006, the AMLJIA unveiled the Loss Control Incentive Program, an activity-based incentive safety program designed to reduce losses by helping pool members target their loss control efforts at reducing those high frequency losses and high severity losses. Members currently participating in the program may earn up to a five percent credit based on their annual contribution with the savings applied against next year’s contribution. Since the program’s inception, members have earned contribution credits totaling over $2.1 million.

The AMLJIA provides all materials necessary to implement and maintain an active safety committee. Participants are asked to perform certain activities and provide documentation of those activities to be eligible for a premium discount. The program involves five key elements:

  • Resolution - Your governing body must pass a resolution to participate in the program. This will help ensure support of your governing body.

  • Safety Plans  - Implement the following five safety plans targeted at preventing injuries and reducing losses, and provide a roster documenting annual employee training on these safety plans. The plans provided by the AMLJIA include:

    • Ergonomics

    • Early Return to Work

    • Back Injury Prevention and Safe Lifting

    • Slip, Trip & Fall Prevention

    • Personal Protective Equipment

  • Maintain an Active Safety Committee and hold a minimum of one safety meeting per month. Safety reports should be incorporated into school board and city council meeting agendas to help raise awareness and gain support throughout administration and staff. Report claims in a timely manner.  You may hold your own monthly safety meeting or participate in the monthly AMLJIA Safety Teleconference, held at 10am on the first Tuesday of each month.

  • Self-inspection Reports - Conduct facility inspections in the spring and fall of each year. This will help you identify and take steps to remediate potential problems.

  • Loss Control Reports - Respond to loss control recommendations generated from AMLJIA loss control visits.
