Our approach is simple.

We guide our members with proven safety programs to prevent injuries before they happen. We actively manage every claim to get the injured employee back to work. And we help our members manage the human side of safety by building employee engagement.

Our program returns all retro refunds to the group and distributes them based on merit, so members consistently earn the refunds they deserve year after year.

Archbright's Manufacturing Retrospective Rating Program
Companies that qualify for our retro group will share 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's Wholesale, Retail & Professional Services Retrospective Rating Program
For years, Washington State wholesale, retail, and professional services companies did not have many options for group retrospective rating programs. In 2017, we brought our expertise to these industries and launched our WRPS (wholesale, retail, and professional services) group.
