Washington State Labor & Industries (L&I) is hosting a free workshop for business owners and managers on how to begin working with L&I.

L&I is a diverse state agency dedicated to the safety, health and security of Washington’s 2.5 million workers. We help employers meet safety and health standards and we inspect workplaces when alerted to hazards. As administrators of the state’s workers’ compensation system, we are similar to a large insurance company, providing medical and limited wage-replacement coverage to workers who suffer job-related injuries and illness. Our rules and enforcement programs also help ensure workers are paid what they are owed, that children’s and teens’ work hours are limited, and that consumers are protected from unsound building practices.

At the workshop, essentials about worker’s compensation, quarterly reporting, steps to take during employee injury, wage and hour laws, and contractor registration rules will reviewed. Use of L&I resources on developing a safety culture at work and methods to keep a workforce safe will also be reviewed during the workshop.

Registration in advance is required as space is limited. Click here to register.
