WORKERS’ COMPENSATION DONE BETTER
You think your business is safe. You’ve got employees directing people to dressing rooms and ringing up their wardrobe additions. You’ve got a waiter serving food, or a bank teller depositing checks. What could go wrong?
Maybe nothing, but consider: The clothing retailer falls out of a display window while dressing a mannequin. Your waiter gets chomped by a lobster while hand-diving in the fresh seafood tank. Your bank teller - surely this is a harmless profession? - but what if they trip over a pile of money and suffer an injury. And what about the employee using their own vehicle to do your jobs? Even if they’re just picking up lunch for the team - coverage for office workers using their own vehicles on company business is often needed as well.
There really is no job without it’s safety hazards. Read an OSHA brochure - the workplace is rife with the potential for injury. It’s your job to look after your workforce.
