Providing tailored safety to Colorado

As Colorado’s leading workers’ compensation provider, we’re there when the unexpected happens and a worker gets injured on the job, but we work relentlessly to prevent injuries from ever happening. With the largest safety team in the state, we protect Colorado’s workforce like no other. We guarantee the health and wellness of employees in every corner of the state, and unlike many carriers, Pinnacol’s safety team reports directly to the Colorado worker.

“Our approach is fundamentally about the worker and keeping them safer because we care deeply about the impact of workplace injuries on families, work cultures and communities.”

Investing in Colorado's future workforce.

In partnership with CareerWise Colorado, Pinnacol offers a three-year apprenticeship program to high school students in the Denver metro area. Apprentices are paid competitive hourly wages as they learn and prepare for a career. Our program was recently featured in The Denver Post for its achievements and widespread recognition. “Colorado’s Pinnacol Assurance is looked at nationally — the U.S. Department of Labor recently visited — as a model of a successful youth apprenticeship program,” said The Denver Post.

“An apprenticeship will change your life. As a high schooler, I didn’t think insurance sounded that interesting, but look at all I’ve done. I’m learning so much, and now I know there is much more to the job than I thought.”
- Naari Navarro, Pinnacol Apprentice
The youth-focused apprenticeship program demonstrates our commitment to developing the future of Colorado’s workforce. Since its inception in 2017, the program has enrolled 63 apprentices. Twelve apprentices have been hired at Pinnacol full-time and 83% of those hires have been from BIPOC backgrounds.
Our apprenticeship program has received numerous awards for its ability to offer transformational opportunities to students while creating a pipeline of young trained talent. Pinnacol has set the standard of what a successful youth apprenticeship program looks like, and proves how revolutionary paid training opportunities can be.
