AmTrust has its Eye on Optometrists

Topics: Workers' Compensation

Our extensive workers’ compensation appetite includes more than 350 eligible classes of business. Let’s take a closer “look” at one of those eligible businesses – optometrists.

Optometrists fall under code 8832 – the same as “physician.” Submission requirements for this class code include:

• Must have at least one full-time employee (owners included), or part-time equivalent.
• Accounts should have no more than 75 employees at any one location per shift.
• New ventures are accepted.
• Off-premises exposures are accepted; however, we prefer private-practice and similar risks – excluding hospitals.

While optometrists certainly face fewer injury risks than occupations like construction workers or restaurants, they are not without their share of job hazards.

Workplace injury risks for optometrists include:

• Slips and falls in the workplace.
• Fatigue from working long shifts.
• Strains and sprains from repetitive tasks.
• Chemical exposure risks.
• Biological hazards.
