SFM's services help school districts lower claim costs and prevent injuries. This leads to lower experience modification factors (e-mods), helping to save money on workers' compensation premiums.
Schools working with SFM see their e-mods drop an average of 1 percent per year.

School districts we insure
A leader in school safety
We've partnered with academic researchers and industry professionals to study and address school employee injuries.
Our original research into school employee injuries revealed the most common causes of school employee injuries, and the most at-risk categories of employees.
We developed the innovative Get Fit & Exercise program to prevent shoulder injuries among school food service workers, and others at high risk.
Find more resources on our school safety page.
SFM comes to us with ideas and programs to put in place that help us create a healthier environment for our employees.
