The High Cost of Not Knowing: CONN-OSHA Meeting Features Workers’ Comp Expert

For immediate release
June 13, 2008

WETHERSFIELD, It can often be a confusing subject, a topic causing businesses in this state a great deal of unnecessary concerns and questions.

Workers’ Compensation insurance, including Modification Rates, will be outlined by James A. D’Errico, assistant vice president and manager of Audit Administration for R.C. Knox and Company in Hartford. D’Errico will be the guest speaker during a June 17 Breakfast Roundtable Discussion meeting sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CONN-OSHA). Titled “The Cost of Not Being Safe – How Your Workers’ Compensation Rate Affects Your Insurance Premiums,” the event will take place from 8:15 to 9:45 a.m. in conference rooms A and B of the agency's Central Office, 200 Folly Brook Blvd., Wethersfield.


“Our goal is to assist companies by taking some of the mystery out of Workers’ Compensation insurance matters that often cause confusion among the business community,” explains John Able, CONN-OSHA Safety Training Specialist and coordinator of the breakfast series.


With more than 40 years of experience in the insurance industry, D’Errico holds a degree in Business Administration from Yale University’s Morse College. Widely recognized in his field, he is an insurance agent and certified insurance consultant with an associate’s degree in Premium Auditing.


D’Errico is currently a committee member of the Connecticut Rating and Classification Board, and a technical advisor for the Independent Agents of Connecticut. Through his guidance, he has helped clients of R.C. Knox and Co. save more than $15 million in overcharges and experience modification-related issues. He has also conducted numerous workshops and seminars and is often designated as an expert witness in his field in the court system.


The breakfast roundtable will also feature a discussion portion, and time permitting, participants will be asked to submit a question, and the group will share opinions and solutions to the various issues. Admission to the roundtable is free, but pre-registration is required. For additional information, or to register, please contact Able at (860) 263-6902, or via email at
