The 2023 lookback: how to take someone's job, but just for a little while

Our perusal of some of our more notable interviews of 2023 ends with a little on-the-job training. Not for us, but for the person interviewed. Corey Jenkins works for SAIF, the major worker's compensation insurer in Oregon.

SAIF sent him out to do some of the jobs of people SAIF insures, some of which involved chain saws, wrenches, cow guts, and more. It's all revealed in a video series, "Oregon Odd Jobs." We revisit our interview with Corey and Senior Safety Manager Michael Hill here, and add a note: one email came in too late, from a listener wondering if SAIF could just lower its rates, rather than making videos.
