Maine Municipal Association Risk Management Services will continue a program to work in partnership with our Workers’ Compensation Fund members to improve workplace safety and the member's workers’ compensation experience. The goals of this program are to:

injury and illness throughout the operations
- Improving overall safety
in the work environment
- Maintaining lines of
communication with all employees
- Protecting members’ assets
- Promoting a
self‐sustaining safety culture
- Utilizing claim management

incentives which reward our partnership toward safety
Participation in the program is on a voluntary basis and eligible credits will be applied effective January 1, 2024. These credits will only be added at the next renewal (no mid‐term adjustments will be made). Each member must elect to be part of the program by sending us the Acknowledgement Form on or before July 1, 2023, the Resolve Form on or before August 1, 2023, and the Data Verification Form on or before September 1, 2023. The Risk Management Services team will work with the member to help achieve its safety goals.
Each qualifying member may receive an incentive credit up to 10%. The program is tiered into three levels based on documented performance. The tiers and associated credits are:
- Tier I....................... 5%
- Tier II.................... 7.5%
- Tier III.................... 10%
The application of a tier credit will not reduce the annual contribution below the minimum contribution level. However, for those members affected by the minimum contribution level (currently $500 or less) they will receive additional consideration as part of a safety enhancement grant application.
