Return on Industrial Insurance (R.O.I.I.trademark Select)

L&I-Insurance

R.O.I.I.trademark Select is BIAW’s performance-based retrospective rating group program with the Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) that provides refunds when participants’ workers’ compensation premiums exceed their losses.  BIAW has proudly offered the R.O.I.I.trademark Program as a member benefit since 1982.  During the program’s 32 years, participants have paid L&I premiums totaling nearly $2.1 billion and R.O.I.I.trademark Select has returned more than $400 million in refunds to participants.  Click here to learn more about the R.O.I.I.trademark Select Program.

Safety Services

Job-site safety is a priority, not only for workers, but for your company’s ability to keep its Experience Modification Rate (EMR) low and claim costs down, factors that determine the amount of your refund.  R.O.I.I.trademark Select participants receive access to our in-house safety program staff which can provide the following services at no cost:

  • Safety program development
  • Job-site safety workshops
  • On-site safety consultations
  • On-site compliance inspection assistance
