Chesapeake Employers offers its policyholders Safety and Loss Control Services at no additional cost.
Our comprehensive safety services are designed to protect your employees and lower your workers' compensation insurance costs, helping you save money on your bottom line. We teach you how to establish and maintain a safe and healthy workplace through a safety culture and accident prevention techniques focused on mitigating risks and reducing accidents. Our injury prevention strategies not only help save lives, but can also help to lower your company's experience modification rating, or "e-mod." A favorable e-mod often translates into lower insurance premiums.
