Companies in New Jersey and throughout the country may be able to reduce workers' compensation claims by implementing safety programs. They may also be able to reduce the severity of any claims that are made after they go into effect.

Smaller businesses may benefit more from avoiding claims as even a single accident can significantly increase their rates.
