About Foresight

Far too many workers in high-risk industries are injured on the job, or worse, never make it home to their families at all. Foresight sees a future where workplace injuries are a thing of the past. We accomplish this through our two visionary brands: Foresight Insurance and Safesite.

As the insurer of the future, our workers’ compensation insurance brings real-time safety engagement technology and dedicated safety coaching together to turn insight into action, driving down business costs and reducing claims. Powered by our proprietary Safesite technology, we blend a custom-tailored safety program with dedicated consulting services, improving client safety behavior and helping eliminate accidents and claims. In a 2022 study, we demonstrated a capability to reduce claims frequency for clients by 18% in just the first year. Deploying the latest technologies into the field and capturing critical safety and risk data from the frontline workers, we link safety performance to insurance and pricing—informing our underwriters’ ability to provide a holistic and competitive quote to our brokers and clients.

Foresight is backed by strong global investors and completed an impressive Series B raise in 2022, bringing funds raised to $59 Million. Safesite’s innovative Safesite Score is patented. We consistently rank on numerous global top Insurtech lists.
