Description

About Foresight Group

Workers’ compensation insurance is stuck in the past. Every business needs workers’ compensation to some extent, but those that need it most are denied, ignored, or price-gauged. The workers on the tip of the spear — the ones actually assuming health and safety risk — deserve better pay and safety programs. Those workers shouldn’t have to compete with their employers’ insurance premiums for resources.

With the Foresight Group, they don’t have to. We take a data-driven approach to risk, which is more nuanced than antiquated rating criteria let on. We believe the positive effects of health and safety programs, and companies that are proactive should be rewarded with lower premiums. Foresight Group’s two subsidiaries Foresight Risk and Insurance Services and Safesite Solutions work hand in hand to deliver coverage that rewards companies that commit to safety. Using the Safesite Safety Score, Foresight policyholders can lower their rates through engagement in proven safe work activities which has a measurable effect on policyholders’ bottom lines.
