Retrospective Rating Programs

Workers’ Compensation & Safety Services > Retrospective Ratings Programs

Our approach is simple.

We guide our members with proven safety programs to prevent injuries before they happen. We actively manage every claim to get the injured employee back to work. And we help our members manage the human side of safety by building employee engagement.

Our program returns all retro refunds to the group and distributes them based on merit, so members consistently earn the refunds they deserve year after year.

Archbright's Manufacturing Retrospective Rating Program

Companies that qualify for our retro group will share their workers’ compensation claims risk across the largest group in the state. These companies also enjoy the rewards of being part of a high performing group that consistently earns refunds for our members.

Archbright's Wholesale, Retail & Professional Services Retrospective Rating Program

For years, Washington State wholesale, retail, and professional services companies did not have many options for group retrospective rating programs. In 2017, we brought our expertise to these industries and launched our WRPS (wholesale, retail, and professional services) group. 

Learn more about retrospective rating programs and why joining a larger group can help you lower upfront costs and increase your potential refund.

Archbright manages the largest and one of the best performing retro groups for manufacturing companies in the state and have been doing so for over 30 years.
We manage all Stay at Work reimbursement submissions as part of our program. Members not only receive additional dollars beyond their potential retro refund, they also save hours of valuable administration time.

We understand expensive claims aren’t necessarily safety issues, they might be people issues. Engaged employees are more productive, get injured less, and get back to work faster than those who are disengaged.

Archbright can help.

Our workers’ compensation team specializes in managing the entire situation, not just the claim.
