Nursefinders, one of the nation’s largest healthcare staffing providers, today announced it has been awarded Workers’ Compensation Risk Certification (WRC), a recognition of Nursefinders’ best in class risk management practices to reduce workplace injuries and related costs.
WRC-certified companies maintain a focus on safety and risk management in order to protect their employees, while offering a higher level of service to clients.
“We have built a reputation in the healthcare staffing industry for our unwavering commitment to quality and high standards of patient care delivery,” says Bob Livonius, CEO of Nursefinders, Inc. “With the WRC certification, we’re now even better equipped to maintain that same level of commitment and standards to safety. This certification program improves our ability to control risk more effectively, and most importantly, helps keep our employees safe.”
Terry Self, director of Risk Management for Nursefinders, commented, “Being a WRC certified provider not only differentiates us in the marketplace, but clearly demonstrates to our clients our desire to mutually diminish the impact of workplace injuries. We are also pleased to do our part in promoting the healthcare staffing industry as responsible and committed employers to the insurance industry by implementing proven risk management practices.”
To be awarded certification, companies undergo a thorough review of their operational practices as they apply to hiring and screening, substance abuse, talent matching, employee orientation, client safety evaluations and partnerships, incident investigations and corrective measures, and return-to-work programs. The results are compared against a system of best practices developed by an advisory council of insurance carriers, insurance brokers, and staffing industry risk managers.
Robert Purdy, president of AIG Specialty Workers’ Compensation, serves on the WRC Advisory Council. “[WRC] continues to raise the standards and image of the staffing industry.”
