North Dakota employers are eligible to apply for Safety Incentive Programs (SIP) through Workforce Safety & Insurance and receive discounts by participating in various programs. Companies who are enrolled in the programs and actively participating in the SIP can receive a maximum discount of 25%.

Companies who are already committed to safety can take advantage of discount savings by applying and enrolling in SIP programs. Employers who are working on increasing their safety programs can utilize the SIP to support their efforts of growing their safety programs.

The purpose of the SIP is to recognize and correct safety hazards in the workplace to prevent injuries and illnesses, and ultimately have all employees go home safely at the end of the day.

Safety Management Program (SMP)

The SMP is designed to assist employers in developing or improving current safety management systems. A WSI Safety Consultant will conduct assessments based on the SMP requirements and develop plans to assist employers in making improvements. Employers who successfully participate in WSI’s SMP can receive a premium discount of 10%.

Safety Action Menu (SAM)

The SAM program is designed to provide employers with options that allow them to choose and implement safety improvement programs that meet their business needs. Employers can receive up to a 15% premium discount by successfully participating in the SAM programs. Each individual SAM program can provide a 5% discount up to a maximum of 15%.

There are 9 different SAM programs an employer can choose from.

  1. Certified Safety Management System
  2. Drug-Free Workplace Program
  3. Learning Management System
  4. Return to Work/Designate Medical Provider Program
  5. Safe Drive Program
