Information shows that in addition to accidents, other claims have increased worker's compensation insurance by $1 million. Total costs for the coming year are expected to be more than $3.6 million.

With increased training and incentives, the hope is that claims will be reduced and costs will be lowered. The council would like to see the saved costs transferred to salaries instead of insurance premiums.

Safety is important and saving taxpayers money is a goal of the council but accidents and injuries will still unfortunately happen.
