BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Companies that want to reduce their global workers compensation costs can enroll in a special course offered by Aon Management Institute.

Known as Comp Camp, the course is intended for risk managers or human resources directors of U.S. multinationals or their counterparts from overseas companies.

Rebecca Shafer Bruce, president and chief executive officer of the Glastonbury, Conn.-based Institute, says the Comp Camp course centers on dealing with workers comp issues "around the clock and around the globe."

She said many risk managers must learn to look at their workers compensation exposures on a global basis, but once they do, the risk managers are very receptive to the idea.

This doesn't mean risk managers necessarily can devise a single program that fits all of their companies' workers comp needs globally, but they can learn to look at exposures and initiate practices that meet local employment laws.

Comp Camp also attracts foreign risk managers, in large part because the privatization of workers comp and disability systems abroad means they want to learn how to deal with the issues their U.S. counterparts have faced for years, says Ms. Bruce.
