The Premium Cost Containment Program

In 1989, the Colorado legislature enacted the Premium Cost Containment Program. Under this program, employers who implement and maintain a standardized loss prevention/loss control program, and achieve certification status are eligible for a reduction on their workers’ compensation insurance premiums. By preventing injuries and lowering costs of claims, these employers also contribute to the stabilization and possible reduction of the standard rates set for their respective industries. Certification status is granted by the Premium Cost Containment Board to employers who can document that they have had a loss prevention/loss control program in effect for at least one year.
The six minimum requirements for certification in the program are:
1.Declaration of Policy
2.Safety/Risk Assessment Committee and/or Coordinator
3.Safety/Loss Prevention Rules
4.Safety/Loss Prevention Training
5.Designated Medical Provider
6.Written Claims Management Procedures

The basic requisites are summarized in the Essentials Premium Cost Containment Program & Employer Certification booklet on the Division website.

Forget learning how to code. The tech skills required to get out of the low-wage workforce are actually a lot simpler. Knowing how to use basic software like Microsoft Excel and Word, it seems, are critical to earning a living wage these days, according to a new analysis of the labor market.

Understanding spreadsheet and word-processing software is a baseline requirement in nearly 80 percent of all middle-skill job openings, according to the report, first discovered by Lauren Weber at the Wall Street Journal.

The research, from labor analysts at Burning Glass Technologies with funding from Capital One Foundation, defines middle-skill occupations as those that don’t necessarily require a college degree but pay more than the median national living wage of $15 an hour. These include store manager, retail supervisor and office/administrative assistant. The researchers looked at job listings posted in 2014.
