Making workers’ comp work better means we conduct research to understand and reduce the probability of occupational injuries and illnesses.

The MEMIC Safety Research Center serves as a bridge between our policyholders, business partners, academia, and state entities to transform ideas into real-life safety solutions.

Bringing Our Mission to Life
Luis Pieretti
Manager, Industrial Hygiene
Loss Control

When we started the MEMIC Safety Research Center, we did it from a position of strength. That is to say: We were already engaging in best workplace safety practices with our policyholders, backed by our Loss Control Department’s knowledge and experience.

By pairing that experience with academic institutions, we want to expand the current state of knowledge in pursuit of solutions to workplace injury. Field experience is irreplaceable, but knowledge gathered from sound research will provide business owners, their employees, and related stakeholders additional tools for the prevention of occupational injuries and illnesses.  

We feel this combination of the real-world experience, combined with research contributions emanating from academia, will produce actionable knowledge that reduces the physical pain and financial cost of injury to our policyholders and their employees. As a result, the American workforce, in general, will benefit as well.
