CHSWC Releases “Selected Indicators in Workers’ Compensation: 2011 Report Card for California”

OAKLAND -- The Commission on Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation (CHSWC) has approved for release the “Selected Indicators in Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation: 2011 Report Card for California.” As part of its mandate to conduct a continuing examination of California’s health and safety and workers’ compensation systems, CHSWC has compiled data from many sources within the workers’ compensation community.  This overview is intended to be a reference for monitoring the ongoing system and serve as an empirical basis for proposing improvements.

CHSWC is charged with examining the health and safety and workers' compensation systems in California and recommending administrative or legislative modifications to improve their operation. CHSWC was established to conduct a continuing examination of the workers' compensation system and of the state's activities to prevent industrial injuries and occupational diseases and to examine those programs in other states.

Information about CHSWC and the 2011 Report Card is available on the CHSWC web site, by contacting CHSWC by writing to 1515 Clay Street, Room 901, Oakland, 94612; by phone at (510) 622-3959: by fax at (510) 622-3265; or by email chswc@dir.ca.gov.
