Texas: Division focuses on accident prevention services
The Division of Workers' Compensation informally proposed rules relating to various notice, service, and reporting requirements imposed upon insurance companies with regard to accident prevention services provided to policyholders.
The rules define the terms "adjusted premium," "loss analysis," and "risk exposure." An insurance company writing workers' compensation insurance in the state must maintain or provide accident prevention facilities and must include surveys, recommendations, training programs, consultations, analysis of accident causes, industrial hygiene, and industrial health services. The accident prevention facilities must also include qualified accident prevention personnel. Comments on the informal proposal were accepted until July 10.
