Hands free is not risk free

When you text and drive your eyes are off the road for an average of five seconds. At 55 MPH, that's enough time to cover the length of a football field. Transportation incidents represented 41 percent of all workplace fatalities in 2012. April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Visit our blog to find resources and information you can share with your employees to educate them on the dangers of using hands-free devices and driving distracted.

VMLIP spotlights cyber security resources

This month we are spotlighting the cyber security resources we offer our members - specifically the eRiskHub. Simply signing provides your entity with access to: security and privacy training; a cyber news and learning center; risk manager tools - including one to help calculate the cost of a breach for your entity; and more. Each week we will be featuring more information on the eRIskHub through our blog. You can receive the most updated blog entries by e-mail by entering your e-mail address under “Follow our blog!” on the top right of the page.

NT24 Accident Reports designed to reduce call times and prevent mistakes

The Nurse Triage 24 (NT24) program, provided by Coventry Workers’ Compensation Service, has introduced a solution to prevent data entry errors, typographical errors, and misspellings related to employee information.


The new Employee Demographics spreadsheet, available on the VMLIP website, allows members to submit via a secure FTP connection employees’ demographic information to be downloaded securely into Coventry’s electronic system. This will allow Coventry to retrieve correct information quickly when an injured employee contacts NT24. Learn more here.
