Michigan Municipal League Fund Announces Loss Control Achievement Awards

30 Communities Recognized for Maintaining Safe Work Environments

LANSING, Michigan – Thirty Michigan communities have earned statewide honors for their outstanding efforts in maintaining safe work environments.

The Michigan Municipal League Workers’ Compensation Fund ( has issued its annual Loss Control Achievement Awards for 2014-2015 to the communities listed below. The certificates were mailed to community winners Friday, May 1.

“These awards represent the best of the best when it comes to communities being safe places for their employees and citizens,” said Michael Forster, director of risk management services for the Michigan Municipal League. “The awards reflect excellent management and an understanding that making safety a priority clearly protects their staffs, residents, and budgets.”

The awards are based on a community’s Experience Modification Factor (EMF) rating, using a formula measuring the frequency and severity of employee injuries over a 3 1/2-year time period. The average EMF is 1.00. Any fund member with an EMF under 1.00 saves significant premium dollars.
