Below is a press release from the Town of Wilmington:
WILMINGTON, MA — The Town of Wilmington has received $28,790.00 back on its workers compensation and property and casualty insurance costs – applicable toward premium reductions for this 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’s employees participated in training and seminars on town facilities management and inspections, law enforcement and public official liability training, among other initiatives support by the MIIA Rewards program.
Brian Scouten, Wilmington’s Safety Committee Chairman provided the following regarding the MIIA Rewards program and the Town’s focus on safety: “Each department in the Town of Wilmington continues to be committed to policies and its internal set of standard operating procedures. These procedures ensure that employees perform their work in a safe and professional manner for the protection of themselves, other employees and the public. The Town partners with MIIA by utilizing their training programs as a source of continual improvement which results in credits. As noted, last year’s credit totaled $28,790 which was utilized to offset fiscal year 2022’s insurance premiums.”
In fiscal year 2021, MIIA awarded over $2 million in premium credits to more than 300 of its member communities and municipal organizations – resulting in a 19-year total of over $42.4 million in credits since the program’s inception.
Stanley Corcoran, Executive Vice President of MIIA said: “Wilmington’s commitment to ensure a safe workplace – is to be commended. Their targeted efforts to mitigate risk over the past year lowered their insurance costs by earning these Rewards credits. MIIA appreciates its ongoing partnership with Wilmington and will continue to work with the town to ensure its employees continue to be well-trained and prepared to avoid unnecessary risks and losses.”
