Letter from a local concrete company:
“It has been our experience that management must engage the help of employees. It has been shown employees will cooperate fully with management when they are part of developing and implementing safety and health protection for themselves and their fellow workers.
Our employees have come to love working at a place where they aren’t pushed beyond their comfort levels to take risks - they are pushed beyond their comfort levels to push safety. A few years ago, it was more natural for some of our employees to walk across a 12 inch wide wood plank 20 feet off the ground than it was for them to don a pair of safety glasses. We fought them to use ladders instead of shimmying up scaffold frames! Fight them to work safely and they’ll eventually thank you for it.”

Letter from a local remodeling company:
“I could see the long-term advantages of joining the group way back when it started. It’s definitely a benefit that it focuses on the construction industry only. The refunds on my yearly premium have stayed steady. The Builders Group has controls in place to maintain low costs; it’s definitely a money saver and it’s easy to track.”

Letter from a local drywall company:
“As part of our ongoing commitment to safety, we implemented a Drug Testing Program in June of 2003. This was done to help lower insurance premiums with the TBG Drug Testing Credit and increased employee safety, comply with customer demands for a Drug Testing Program, and ensure an overall peace of mind that our workers are substance free. During the first full year of the policy being in place, we saw our incident rate drop over 60% and our number of injuries with lost workdays fell by 50%.”
Since the implementation of our Drug Testing Program, our accident rates have continued to stay at these lower numbers.”

Another testimonial from a TBG Member:
When I started my business in the early 1990’s, we were with a major insurance company. One day they walked in and said they were no longer going to write workers’ comp for the construction industry. We were left high and dry. Some of us has been considering starting and self-insured fund and saw an opportunity to put a plan together.
It’s been very good for us. It’s a definite advantage that TBG is niched in the construction industry. We’ve been very effective because of our depth of training in loss control and our solid underwriting criteria.
