Take Your Company's Insurance Costs Captive
Many companies are turning to captive insurance to control the ever-changing costs of traditional insurance. A captive insurance company is an independent insurance company owned and operated by its members. The captive insures the risks of its owner/members by covering the predictable losses while transferring away the catastrophic, unpredictable losses.

This is the popular corporate safety pursuit today and this evolved over the years from the promotion of "Behavior Based Safety" programs. To provide an overview in a few words, changing employee's attitudes toward safety requires a lot of demonstration of sincerity and this starts with those at the top of the organization's corporate ladder.
Every corporation has their own personality: Candidly, some place a higher degree of priority on safety than do others. This has come about by experience and knowledge. There are companies that have experienced a devastating loss changing their perspective on the priority and others have taken a close look at the savings generated by a good safety record, at times after suffering through years of excessive and unnecessary accident costs. And there's personal attitude. Some simply are more cautious by nature, or take fewer uncalculated risks than others, and this can extend to a higher concern for safety compliance.
There are many reasons for elevating the safety priority and this encompasses the ability to sustain it. It has to be important enough to truly fertilize a safety culture that influences employee attitudes because there is no finish line with this pursuit. Of course, the welfare of employees has no limits on importance; but there's the financial assessment of what can be done aside from what must be done.
Finally, any organization that is seeking to build a safety culture must have a sound safety program in place, obtaining at least, marginally good safety performance. Safety compliance should be well established. For example, if required compliance safety training isn't occurring as it should, this will undermine efforts to change employee's safety attitudes and behaviors.
Safety specialists can assist with developing a course for safety culture and there are canned programs available for purchase that lays out the road map. Before taking these steps, conduct a quality assessment of the organization's personality.
