Protect Your Employees
If an employee gets hurt in the course of their duties, then responsibility for the incident falls on the employer, even if they were not negligent in the injury itself. Workers’ compensation will provide both the business and the employee with assistance in these cases.
Just a few common occupational safety hazards include:
Slip-and-fall, burn, head injury and other hazardous risks.
Machinery injury risks.
Injuries from commercial vehicle accidents.
Repetitive motion injuries.
Toxic exposure injuries.
By filing for workers’ compensation, qualifying employees can receive:
Paycheck replacement and income support
Death benefits (provided to the employee’s survivors if they die on the job)
Additionally, by taking workers’ compensation, an employee agrees not to sue the business for their injury in most circumstances. As a result, the business’s own liability for injuries will drop, while they will still create a managed way to help someone during their recovery.
