To meet the needs of our members, VRSA employs claims professionals in our worker’s compensation and property and liability claims departments. VRSA also employs safety, communications and human resources consultants who provide risk management services to mitigate liabilities, as well as underwriting and member services staff who provide policy and underwriting support. Our information services and communications staff keep our website up-to-date and interactive programs working.
