I was going to stay out of this but wc insurance modifers can be manipulated. Some comnpanies just pay out of pocket for small claims since the sheer number of claims carry more weight in regards to the modifier than severity. You can not hide from the severe accidents that must be documented such as the fataility on I20 in Midland about three weeks ago. My understanding is that the cause was a repair/replacement issue that was not done by management. Sure a lot of folks on here taking up for Basic instead of facing the truth. What else is new! Blood on the hands of management!
You make the comment "published TRIR". Anybody that knows what a real safety program is about understands that TRIR can be manipulated as well as other numbers. The Fatalities and very bad accidents such as the two guys that just got severly burned in west texas can not be manipulated. You seem to be part of the problem yourself by looking at only "published TRIR". Get the REAL FACTS straight before YOU comment!!!!
