WHAT IS A WORKERS COMPENSATION SAFETY GROUP?
State law allows employers in similar industries to reduce their workers' compensation premiums by purchasing their coverage as a group. Group purchase programs provide the most cost-effective and advantageous workers' compensation insurance options available.
With the Emergency Service Organization Workers' Compensation Safety Group, you'll save money and get great coverage for your employees and volunteers. More than 650 emergency service organizations in Texas have already joined the ESO Safety Group.
