Since 1922, Federal Premium Ammunition (Federal) has been a major producer of sporting ammunition. Their facility is located on 175 acres in Anoka County, Minnesota with half a million square feet of manufacturing space. The facility manufactures seven days a week, making multiple daily shipments to meet demand. Some of the 1100 production employees have worked there for more than 40 years and say it’s a family atmosphere. Employee health and safety is a top priority.
After Federal suffered 23 musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) injuries with an average cost of $17,222 per claim totaling almost $400,000, they knew they needed a change. They implemented BTE’s professional and legally defensible Post Offer of Employment (POET) program and, within 5 years, successfully reduced their injury rates and workers comp costs.
