ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

We are grateful to the members of the Commission on Health and Safety and Workers Compensation for their support of this research. We would like to express our thanks to Christine Baker, the Executive Director of the Commission, who worked tirelessly to ensure that the research is informed by the input of the stakeholders in the workers compensation community, while also providing invaluable comments. In addition, we thank the members of the CHSWC Permanent Disability Advisory Group, whose comments, criticism, questions, and research advice have been extremely helpful.

We are grateful for the support of the California Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) and its Director, Stephen Smith. In addition, we would like to thank Suzanne Marria, the Assistant Director of the DIR for her support and insightful comments and questions.

We would also like to thank Mark Ashcraft, the Manager of the California Self-Insured Plans (SIP). The SIP provided financial assistance to the project, and Mr. Ashcraft assisted with the survey, while also answering questions and providing additional data.

Dr. Reville has also been supported by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health under Grant Number 1 R01 ON03751 01.

We would like to thank the many self-insured employers that provided data. The response of the self-insured community in California has been extraordinary. These employers have devoted considerable staff time and resources to preparing databases and answering questions; clearly, the study would not have been possible without their cooperation. Special gratitude is owed to Joe Markey of the California Self-Insurers Association, Theresa Muir of Southern California Edison, Mary Garry of Hewlett-Packard, and Jill Dulich of Marriott for their efforts. We should note that although the latter three individuals provided support as representatives of the self-insured community, their companies may not have been included in the survey.

We would also like to thank the Employment Development Department and the Workers Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (WCIRB) for their data. At EDD, Rich Kihlthau and Michelle Bunds were very helpful. Mr. Kihlthau s understanding of the complex EDD data, excellent documentation, and helpful suggestions were invaluable. In addition to facilitating use of the data, Dave Bellusci from the WCIRB answered many questions about the data and workers compensation insurance.

Several colleagues have provided excellent advice and support. Frank Neuhauser (University of California, Berkeley) assisted in the sampling and has provided comments and
