Classification Search Updated with 2016 Classification Phraseologies 

 The WCIRB has also updated the WCIRB.com Classification Search tool to reflect the new classification phraseologies effective January 1, 2016. In addition to providing a full text search across all classification phraseologies, Classification Search also allows searches based on keywords commonly associated with the relevant classifications or industries. You can also access the prior year’s phraseology by scrolling down the page to “Prior Phraseology and Footnote." 

 To use the Classification Search, go to http://www.wcirb.com/class-search.
