What is a Safety Group?
A Safety Group is a collection of companies that share a trade or industry, and therefore share similar work conditions and hazards. In a safety group, these companies pool their workers compensation premiums and claims, spreading and mitigating financial risk. Profits are returned to members as dividends.
A New York State Insurance Fund (NYSIF) safety group protects your business by spreading the risk. Even if your business experiences high losses one year, it's likely that other businesses in the safety group have not, so spreading the risk and lowers your costs and keeps you protected.
The NYSIF safety group program is fully insured, so members will never be assessed for additional premiums in a given plan year. This makes the program safe and beneficial from a financial and practical perspective for employers.
