The Cash Incentive Saftey Initiative: City of Gallup, New Mexico
Roe Paper No. 9 2007 Author(s): Eric Honeyfield — Publication date: 2007-07-01 Category: Better Government Abstract: The City of Gallup, NM, like many governmental bodies that employ field crews, suffered from an ever-increasing number of worker’s compensation claims and associated annual increases in worker’s compensation insurance premiums. The implementation of the Cash Incentive Safety Initiative has both improved the health of employees and reduced costs associated with absent and injured workers. As explained below, there is real potential for similar programs to benefit municipal and state governments nationwide.
