Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Corporation Launches New Microsite


Baton Rouge, LA (CompNewsNetwork) - The Louisiana Workers' Compensation Corporation (LWCC) announced it has launched a new stand-alone Web site, www.saferplacetowork.com, which provides a wealth of centralized safety information for both employers and employees.

The "microsite" makes available 39 separate safety documents in a free, downloadable PDF format. It covers specific topics relating to driving safety, lifting safety, and prevention of slips and falls, as well as advice on how to create a safety program for the workplace.

According to Michael Page, LWCC director of safety and loss prevention, “The leading causes of workplace injuries include vehicular accidents, falls from heights, and overexertion or lifting injuries—especially related to the health care industry. By implementing safety training programs in the workplace, employers can reduce the number and severity of these types of injuries."

The new LWCC microsite—with its easy-to-remember URL, www.saferplacetowork.com—was designed to encourage employers and employees to work together in creating a safe workplace.

“Through the use of this new microsite, LWCC is giving employers the tools they need to help ensure that workers don't get hurt on the job and that employees are provided the information they need to get the job done in a productive and safe manner,” adds Page.

LWCC (www.lwcc.com) is a private, nonprofit mutual insurance company. It is Louisiana's largest writer of workers' compensation insurance, covering about 22,000 policyholders in the state. For six consecutive years, LWCC has been named one of the top 50 property and casualty insurance companies in the nation—out of more than 2,700—by Ward Group, the leading authority on insurance industry benchmarking.
