Assurance is pleased to recognize Medical Express Ambulance Service, Inc. (MedEx) as a Minimizing Risk, Maximizing Health (MRMH) Award recipient. MedEx is a premier ambulance transportation provider for the Chicagoland area.
Due to the manual lifting and physical exertion required of employees, MedEx worked with Assurance to implement new risk management tools and safety programs, including a safe patient handling program and additional training and education. MedEx established a safety committee, along with a more robust Return to Work program and driver safety procedures. MedEx even purchased new vehicles that include safety monitoring devices to measure the acceleration rate, hard stops, sharp turns and mobile device usage.
Over the last eight years, MedEx has improved their loss ratio by 94 percent and Experience Modification Rating - a factor used to determine annual workers' compensation premiums based on losses - by over 50 percent, which is a big leap for any organization. This in turn decreased workers' compensation premiums by 44 percent (even with a 4 percent increase in payroll).
Assurance recognized MedEx's achievements at a MRMH Award presentation on Thursday, December 21. The MRMH Award is open to all Assurance clients that work alongside the Top 50 U.S. insurance brokerage to achieve quantifiable results in minimizing workplace risk and maximizing the health and wellbeing of employees. Clients must meet certain criteria to qualify, including a large quantifiable reduction or improvement in a variety of key areas.
