MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast
Episode #2 | Published November 11, 2019
You might be thinking about how you can improve the safety culture at your workplace, but from the start MEMIC had to change the workplace culture of an entire state. MEMIC President and CEO Michael Bourque says that MEMIC was born out of crisis. In the late 80s and early 90s Maine had a terrible safety culture and increasing levels of legal conflict making it the most expensive place in the country to do business. The economy suffered and insurance companies were fleeing the state. Finally, workers’ compensation reforms were made in 1992 and Maine Employers Mutual Insurance Company (MEMIC) was created. Now with 8 offices across the Eastern Seaboard, MEMIC shares its workers’ compensation and safety expertise with policyholders across the country. Find out what MEMIC’s experience can teach your organization about safety and initiating a culture change.
