Hazleton Carpet Cleaning Firm Renews Safety Committee Certification

Pennsylvania employers can receive a 5 percent discount on workers' compensation insurance by forming a workplace safety committee. One small PA service company enjoys the benefits of higher productivity and lower operating costs.

PRLog - May 1, 2012 - WILKES-BARRE, Pa. -- In 1993 amendments made to the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act allowed a one time, five percent workers' compensation premium discount for any employer who formed and maintained a workplace safety committee covering their PA workplaces, and which met state-established requirements for certification.   Now 5 percent discounts can be earned annually as a result of subsequent amendments to the Act.

  Services Etcetera of Hazleton, a local carpet cleaning and janitorial firm, was twelfth in the state to become certified when the program was established and recently renewed their certification through the Department of Labor & Industry.   In addition to monetary savings the employer of 10 full and part time workers is proud to have suffered only one small lost time accident in over two decades.  

  According to estimates from “The National Safety Council”, for every $1 of direct costs spent on a lost time injury, between $4 and $8 is spent on indirect costs such as lost or spoiled production, damaged equipment, worker retraining and accident investigation.   Employers experience more than just monetary savings as workers become more alert and aware of their surroundings.   “There is a definite boost in morale when employees become part of the process” explains the company’s general manager Robert G. Martin.

  Committees must have a minimum of 2 employer and 2 employee representatives and meet monthly.   Members must be trained by qualified trainers in hazard inspection, accident investigation and safety committee operation.   Additional information or copies of the company’s agendas, attendance lists and meeting minutes can be requested through their website at http://www.procleaner.biz/.
