Taking appropriate measures to make sure your staff members are safe on the job is crucial. Without workers' comp insurance and safety protocols in place, you may find it difficult to prevent workplace injuries and associated medical expenses.

Depending on the size of your company, you may be legally required to have workers' compensation coverage in order to safeguard your employees and business from an accident. Either way, both large and small businesses can benefit from being covered by workers' compensation.

Create and display Safety Policies

Create and display Safety Policies

Everyone’s place of work is different, which means there is no one-size-fits-all approach to worker’s compensation and safety practices. It’s important to create a unique set of safety guidelines for your employees. Run through these specific safety policies with them and display the guidelines throughout the work environment. 

Hold regular Safety Trainings

Even if you feel like your staff is well-versed in safety protocols, holding regular meetings and training can help emphasize the importance of taking these measures. Whether it’s once a month or every quarter, make sure to set aside time to train your employees on a consistent basis. 

Take time to get to understand your employees wants and needs in this area as well - if they think they could use more training, hold optional training sessions for those who want to learn more. 

Prioritize preventative methods

Preventative maintenance is key to keeping up with risk management and saving money related to medical care and legal disputes. Preventative methods don’t only include displaying safety policies and training your employees every month. It’s also important to:

  • Make sure you are always fully staffed
  • Provide personal protective equipment when necessary
  • Inspect the work environment regularly for possible hazards
  • Communicate with your team regularly 
  • Schedule cleanings throughout the work environment on a weekly basis

With these preventative measures in place, you can reduce the risk associated with workplace injury and illness.
