IAIABC 4th Annual Excellence Award

The IAIABC Excellence Award, formerly the Innovation Award, recognizes jurisdictions for the development of successful solutions to reduce harm and aid recovery from occupational injuries and illnesses. These solutions address policy and program challenges jurisdictions face while regulating and administering workers’ compensation.

The Award will recognize governmental entities (such as agencies, boards, commissions, rating bureaus, councils, and courts) that administer and regulate workers’ compensation acts, systems, and schemes.
