Managing Safety Through Good Hiring Practices (60-90 min.)

9:30 - 10:30 AM
Did you know that in the past two years, employees who have been on the job less than one year accounted for nearly 40 percent of the total claims costs and number of claims reported to Pinnacol? This course will provide you with information to help you safely introduce new employees to your workplace pre- and post-offer. In addition, we will discuss specific opportunities to review potential employees and what steps you can take to ensure you are hiring employees who are as committed to safety are you are.

Sleep/Wellness/Safety/Performance: Connecting the ZZZs (60 min.)

10:45 - 11:45 AM
Sleep deprivation and disorders can have a significant impact on the safety and performance of your employees. Since sleeping isn’t something that typically happens at work, you probably have no idea how your employees fair. In this session, you will learn about the impact of sleep and fatigue on your employees’ safety and wellness, and how this is often compounded by shift work, extended work days and other health conditions. Like many other workplace risk factors, the sleep health of your employees can be managed. We’ll help you identify ways to improve those ZZZs for your employees and your bottom line.

Please RSVP for any of the programs to Emily Ewing via email at or via telephone at 303.830.2972.

Colorado Restaurant Association worker’s compensation “Safety Group”dividend plan with Pinnacol Assurance

The goal of the plan is to promote safety in the workplace so that we can continue to share dividends and discounted insurance rates back to participating members.  Specifically, your benefits to participate are:

  • 4% potential discount on your Workers’ Comp premium
  • Eligibility for a safety group program dividend
  • Free safety group program training and materials
  • Free risk management training – available online and in locations across the state

As part of continued participation in the Safety Group program, it is required by Pinnacol Assurance that you (or an appropriate member of your management staff) attend or participate in 2 safety seminars per year. Failure to comply with the requirement of attending 2 safety seminars will result in your removal from eligibility to get a 4% discount on your insurance rates. (Note:  If you are not currently receiving the 4% discount, attending 2 safety group seminars will also make you re-eligible to receive your discount.)  New this year – we’ve paired two classes each day so that you can complete your annual requirements in one day!
