Alaska does have written safety and health program requirements for employers who self-insure for workers' compensation liability. These employers are required to document their safety/loss control program as part of the application/renewal process.
Employers who wish to initially self-insure or renew their self-insured status for workers' compensation liability are required to submit a detailed outline of their safety/loss control program as part of the application process (8 AAC 46.010). Since 8 AAC 46.010 does not specify what the minimum requirements of a safety/loss control program are, affected employers are encouraged to follow industry best practices.
