I’m working with a customer this morning on a Subcontractor Safety Questionnaire. As we’ve talked about in the past… workers compensation claims don’t just affect your premiums. Keeping your Illinois Workers Compensation Experience Modification Factor under 1.00 can be a qualifing consideration for many jobs. (see our Opportunity Cost post on 4/8/2010)
Part of this subcontractor safety questionnaire for this Illinois Contractor requires your OSHA Recordable Injury Rate. The Department of Labor has a nice write up and a calculation tool for determining your OSHA recordable injury frequency rate. The online calculator will not only show your numbers but it will also show how you compare with other businesses. It can show the comparison for just Illinois and even differentiate by SIC code. Check it out.
