Below is a press release from MIIA:
WILMINGTON, MA — The Town of Wilmington has received $31,533 back on its worker compensation and property and casualty insurance costs — applicable towards premium reductions for the next fiscal year — thanks to its participation in an incentive program offered by the Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Association (MIIA), its insurance provider.
Committed to keeping the community safer and fiscally stronger, Wilmington town employees participated in human resources, labor relations and public building inspection and facilities maintenance seminars, among other initiatives supported by the MIAA Rewards program.
Brian S. Scouten, Assistant Superintendent in the Public Buildings Department for the Town of Wilmington stated, “The Public Buildings Department continuously provides updated safety and training procedures for all our staff. This is essential in providing safe, clean and thoroughly disinfected workplaces and public facilities, that serve our residents, students, staff and all our departments.”
In fiscal year 2020, which concluded on June 30, MIIA awarded over $2.4 million in premium credits to 285 of its member communities and municipal organizations – resulting in an 18-year total of over $38.2 million since the program’s inception.
Stanley Corcoran, Executive Vice President of MIIA said, “The Town of Chelmsford has demonstrated a great commitment over the past year to promote safety in the workplace and mitigate risk. The result of their efforts has been to help lower their insurance costs by earning these Rewards credits. MIIA looks forward to its ongoing partnership with Chelmsford to ensure its employees continue to be well-trained and prepared to avoid unnecessary risks and losses, and to save local taxpayer dollars.”
