Employers, are worker’s compensation premiums continuing to cut into your bottom line? One way to reduce those costs is to become a certified drug-free workplace. The Georgia State Board of Worker’s Compensation certifies employers as drug-free. Once certified, those employers submit a copy of their drug-free workplace certificate to their insurance carrier to receive a 7.5% reduction of their worker’s compensation premiums. The State Board provides an on-line application process for interested employers.
