History of AMERISAFE

Safe Above All is more than what we do, it’s who we are.

Whether underwriting a policy at the home office in DeRidder, LA or inspecting a construction site in Omaha, NE, our employees work hard to keep our policyholders protected. Our people are at the heart of who we are as a company and our success is due to their efforts.

Knowing that our impact is based on the people we hire, AMERISAFE strives to employ and develop professionals in their field that mirror the qualities found on the worksite. No matter where they work, our employees are consistent, focused, frugal, responsible and dedicated to providing the best service possible.

With workers’ compensation, AMERISAFE is in it for the long haul. We approach the careers of our employees in the same way. Their history with our company is part of our formula for success.
