One of the biggest risks restoration contractors face is in employee safety. Worker injuries occur at a much higher percentage than general liability or auto insurance claims. The following infographic provides some insight into where you are most at risk for experiencing a worker-related injury and how you can help prevent them.
Whether you’re taking the initiative to start a safety program or you’ve been assigned the task, your workers compensation carrier and agent can be an invaluable resource. Most workers compensation companies have dedicated loss control professionals that will come out and inspect your operations free of charge. By surveying job sites, procedures, and office policies, they can help ensure your workers have everything they need to avoid injury or illness.
In addition to that, as a restoration contractor specialist we have a number of safety resources we can provide to your company to help implement your internal procedures to avoid potential claims. To find out more, please contact our office.
