The cost of an injured worker is far greater than what you pay for insurance when you consider the impact to productivity, other employees, and your future premiums. Workers’ compensation insurance only covers your direct costs, but a comprehensive workers’ compensation program can do so much more. The best programs proactively manage risk and include safety and return-to-work programs to mitigate risk and lower the cost in the long run.
Safer employees have fewer accidents which lead to lower costs. Our workers’ compensations programs are designed with your objectives, industry and exposures in mind, and place your employees’ safety as the number one concern. We help you identify ways to reduce incidents and put you in a position to respond quickly should an employee be injured or disabled.
When an accident does happen, we use a proactive claims management approach and focus on claims advocacy to positively impact and control costs. By managing the various aspects of a complicated claim from the start, we are able to get claims resolved quickly and effectively. Strong claims management paired with safety and return-to-work programs deliver cost saving strategies that allow you to manage your workers’ compensation plans.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to protect employees that are reasonably anticipated to come into contact with blood or certain body fluids. While most employers associate exposure to bloodborne pathogens with healthcare workers only, there are a host of other employees who may be at risk of occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
The construction industry continues to face ongoing challenges related to supply chain delays and product availability due to COVID-19. Dodge Data & Analytics, a leading provider of commercial construction project data, recently reported that the construction materials cost index increased by 6% in the month of April alone, more than the average annual increase. Dodge also reported the anticipated timeline for return to normal stockpiled inventory could be as long as another 18-24 months. Historically, skyrocketing material costs and product shortages were addressed through contract contingency; in current market conditions, this method is proving inadequate to address the monthly cost increases of construction materials.
