Why AWANE Wins At Controlling Workers Compensation Costs

Blog post image- {{name}}

The Workers’ Compensation market could currently best be characterized as stable, but changes in the nation’s workforce—coupled with rapid-fire technological advancements—threaten to upset the balance of the industry. The automotive, roads, fuel, and related industries have unique needs when it comes to Workers’ Compensation, and the Automotive Industries Compensation Corporation (AICC) was created in 1996 to address these needs for businesses in Massachusetts.

Among the factors challenging the Workers’ Compensation system are increasing medical costs, threats to the industry’s security systems and the changing nature of the workforce. However, many organizations are seeking solutions leveraging not only new technology, but joining organizations such as the AICC to enhance company safety culture, and have the support and knowledge provided by the AWANE team, presenting more opportunities to control costs and ensure their injured workers are receiving timely and proper care.
