Schaumburg, Ill. (January 30, 2017) – Assurance is pleased to recognize BroadBand Interactive as a Minimizing Risk, Maximizing Health (MRMH) Award recipient. BroadBand Interactive is a multi-state premier provider of sales, installations, audit, field collections and telemarketing services to the cable television and telecom industry.

The MRMH Award is open to all Assurance clients that work alongside the Top 50 U.S. insurance brokerage to achieve quantifiable results in minimizing workplace risk and maximizing the health and wellbeing of employees. Clients must meet certain criteria to qualify, including a large quantifiable reduction or improvement in a variety of key areas.

Assurance began working with BroadBand Interactive on its risk management initiatives in 2013 after the company outgrew the services of their local broker. Assurance immediately provided BroadBand Interactive with loss control information regarding fleet safety and drug testing policies. Together, they implemented a loss control plan to reduce claims and improve workplace safety. Some of the specifics of the plan included:

  • Driver safety program
  • Fleet monitoring system
  • Unscheduled field observations
  • Revamped orientation process and employee safety handbook

By the end of 2016, the company experienced a 66 percent reduction in workers’ compensation incidents and over $175k in cost savings. BroadBand Interactive improved their Experience Modification Rating – a factor used to determine annual workers’ compensation premiums based on losses – by over 50 percent, which is a big leap for any organization. 

Here is the full case study on BroadBand Interactive.
