Pittsfield Earns Insurance Premium Credits Through MIIA
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Pittsfield earned $28,771 in insurance premium credits through the Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Association Rewards Program.
The City of Pittsfield received $28,771 back on its workers compensation and property and casualty insurance costs, applicable toward premium reductions for the next fiscal year, because of its participation in an incentive program offered by the Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Association (MIIA), its insurance provider.
"We are thrilled to receive these MIIA Reward credits. Within the City of Pittsfield, it’s vital that our employees have access to comprehensive resources, training, and information that support their safety and well-being," Mayor Linda Tyer said. "These credits reflect a steady commitment on the part of our employees to staying engaged and informed to ensure a safe, productive and efficient working environment."
Pittsfield employees participated in seminars and training sessions on human resources and legal issues, as well as a boiler sensor pilot program, among other initiatives supported by the MIIA Rewards program.
In fiscal year 2020, which concluded on June 30, MIIA awarded over $2.4 million in premium credits to 285 of its member communities and municipal organizations – resulting in an 18-year total of over $38.2 million since the program’s inception.
"The City of Pittsfield has demonstrated a great commitment over the past year to promote safety in the workplace and mitigate risk," Stanley Corcoran, executive vice president of MIIA said. "The result of their efforts has been to help lower their insurance costs by earning these Rewards credits. MIIA looks forward to its ongoing partnership with Pittsfield to ensure its employees continue to be well-trained and prepared to avoid unnecessary risks and losses, and to save local taxpayer dollars."
