Equiliem Recognized with Top Safety Award by Marsh & McLennan

Equiliem selected from among 800 of their peers as a Minimizing Risk, Maximizing Health (MRMH) award recipient. Assurance, a Marsh & McLennan brokerage, recognized Equiliem for their focus on employee safety and well-being.

Equiliem is proud to be recognized for their persistence and dedication to worker safety. “We are relentless about doing everything in our control to create a safe and comfortable environment for our employees,” said Bradley Block, Chief Vision Officer at Equiliem.

Equiliem experienced a three-year upward tick in the frequency and severity of claims, despite following industry standard practices to manage risk. They implemented a highly effective plan that led to a significant reduction in claim frequency and worker’s compensation claims. Their plan included making strategic changes that would lead to sustainable work environments that were safer.

Actions included:

  1. Selecting the best partners and optimizing the use of their resources
  2. Negotiating and collaborating with clients on items ranging from contract language to safe operating practices, standard operating procedures, workplace safety training, and more
  3. Creating a strong internal team focused on reducing risk
  4. Moving beyond staffing industry guidelines to create operational controls specific to the risk tolerance level of the team

“This is an extraordinary honor that many team members played a role in obtaining. It shows that we all understand the responsibility and importance of building a safety culture by minimizing risk,” said Block. Block added that clients, insurance carriers, and insurance brokers came together to break down borders, collaboration, and partner with employee safety as a common goal. The case study is showcased on the Assurance website.
