The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services' Workers' Safety-OSHA provides Risk Management to policy holders companies. Risk Management is a study that evaluates each individual company and quantifies its past, current and projected financial losses using company specific Workers' Compensation data. By utilizing this data, these studies advise employers on benefits, methods, costs and potential savings. Risk Management studies may also involve the coordination of other resources needed to assist a client.
Specifically, a Risk Management Analysis will focus on where a company is experiencing injuries and how those injuries will impact the company financially. The Risk Management Specialist will visit your facility and present the Risk Management Analysis findings to management and employees. The consultant will conduct a multi-media presentation outlining problem areas. NOTE: The services are free of charge to all Wyoming Workers' Compensation policyholders.
