The clock has rolled over into 2024 and here at Builders Trust we continue to work to make sure you, our Participant, has the most valuable workers’ compensation policy in the business. Over the years we have strived to be the best and most valuable workers’ compensation program for New Mexico contractors. As shown in our Mission Statement and Core Values on page four, nothing about that has changed.
We congratulate B & D Industries Inc. on winning one of the highest honors in the nation for a construction company. The award, given by the Associated General Contractors recognizes their commitment to safety and occupational health management.
Happy New Year and welcome to 2023! With every new year we want to start fresh, renew our resolutions and take a deep breath in anticipation of what the upcoming year will bring. For Builders Trust 2023 starts with yet another innovative solution for you. We are really excited to announce our soon to be released safety app! This is a project two years in the making and we are very pleased with what we have developed.
Fall in New Mexico - What could be better? Better is going home to your family each night after a hard day's work with no injuries. Builders Trust has always been an advocate for working safety which is why we go out to your job sites to do inspections and trainings.
It’s that time of year again! Spring in New Mexico means wind and at Builders Trust, it means it’s time for the Claims Payment Option program. We will be sending out invoices in early June with a due date of June 30th for you to submit payment for any 2021 claims you wish to buy back. Remember, this program is voluntary. You are not required to buy back any of these claims. But it is your opportunity to help lower your work comp costs via reduced mods and tier levels.** Should you have any questions once you receive your invoice, please don’t hesitate to contact the Policy Administration Department here at Builders Trust at (505) 345-3477 or (800) 640-3369. ** Not all buy backs will result in a reduction in pricing.
Again, Builders Trust lowered overall rates for 2022 an average of 7.5%. However, we have not reduced or rolled back any of our programs. Instead, we have added to our training with the traveling training trailer where we bring the training right to your jobsite. We still offer our Tool Box Talks via e-mail every Friday as well as an extensive library of video training. Our Field Safety Services staff offer many different in-person classes from OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 to Ladder Safety and Confined Space training.
