Press release from the Town of Chelmsford:
September 30 2020
The Town of Chelmsford has received $40,024 back on its workers compensation and property and casualty insurance costs – applicable toward premium reductions for the next fiscal year—thanks to its participation in an incentive program offered by the Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Association (MIIA), its insurance provider.
Committed to keeping the community safer and fiscally stronger, Chelmsford employees participated in law enforcement training, as well as human resources and facilities maintenance best practices trainings, among other initiatives supported by the MIIA Rewards program.
“The Town’s employees have, once again, demonstrated their commitment towards protecting the health and safety of the public and their co-workers.” said Chelmsford Town Manager Paul Cohen. “Training and prevention avoids the costs associated with damage to property, medical care, and employee absence. MIIA has been a great partner to the Town prior to and during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
In fiscal year 2020, which concluded on June 30, MIIA awarded over $2.4 million in premium credits to 285 of its member communities and municipal organizations – resulting in an 18-year total of over $38.2 million since the program’s inception.
Stanley Corcoran, Executive Vice President of MIIA said, “The Town of Chelmsford has demonstrated a great commitment over the past year to promote safety in the workplace and mitigate risk. The result of their efforts has been to help lower their insurance costs by earning these Rewards credits. MIIA looks forward to its ongoing partnership with Chelmsford to ensure its employees continue to be well-trained and prepared to avoid unnecessary risks and losses, and to save local taxpayer dollars.”
