Delaware: Chamber, insurance department partner to promote workplace safety program
The Department of Insurance and the Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce recently joined forces to promote the state's Workplace Safety Program. Officials said qualifying businesses that pass a safety audit by the department can save up to 19 percent on their annual workers' comp premiums.
"Small businesses are the life's blood of Delaware's economy and the Workplace Safety Program operates to significantly cut one of their most substantial costs of doing business," said Karen Weldin Stewart, commissioner of the Department of Insurance.
