"Our parent company is really impressed with the success of the Archbright Retro Group and premium refunds. The net costs after refunds, has caused our parent company to lower "per employee costs" below some of their other companies for workers compensation insurance premiums (and all of them are self-insured).
—Director of Finance & Controller, Manufacturing Company
Retrospective Rating Programs, also known as "Retro,” are safety incentive programs offered by Washington L&I that offers refunds of L&I premiums for workers' compensation insurance as a reward for creating safe work environments.
Every business is looking for ways to decrease costs and increase productivity. Creating safe work environments and effectively managing workers' compensation claims boosts both productivity and your bottom line. Safe companies pay lower L&I workers compensation insurance premiums and earn refunds from L&I through retrospective rating programs. It's the way Labor & Industry rewards business leaders for doing what's right.
In this business, size matters. Manufacturing companies that qualify for our retro group benefit from the protection of sharing their workers' compensation claims risk across the largest group in the state. These companies also enjoy the rewards of being part of a high performing group that consistently earns refunds for our members.
Archbright manages the largest and one of the best performing retro groups for manufacturing companies in the state and have been doing it for over 30 years. Our program has refunded over $160 million dollars to participating members and continues to set the bar higher each year. Our approach is simple: prevent injuries before they happen through proven safety programs, actively manage every claim to get the injured employee back to work, and guide our members in managing the human side of safety by driving employee engagement. Consistently we show that engaged employees are more productive, get injured less, and get back to work faster than those who are disengaged. We specialize in managing the whole situation, not just the claim.
