Framing a Safety Program
“Framing a Safety Program” focuses on why a safety program is needed no matter the size of the company. There is no one all inclusive safety program that works for every company. We will discuss key components all programs should have, who should be responsible for the program, implementing it, monitoring it, and keeping it going. The goal of a safety program is to ensure the company can continue operations by preventing work place injuries and claims. We go over steps companies can implement to control, prevent and mitigate losses.

Motor Vehicle Safety Training
Motor Vehicle Safety and losses associated with company vehicles or even employee owned vehicles is a loss leader for insurance companies. Motor vehicle fatalities have become the leading cause of work related deaths for ALL OCCUPATIONS! Because of these losses insurance companies are looking closely at construction company driving records, fleets, past losses and exposure. We will go over the most common types of vehicle collisions, how to prevent them. Other topics covered in this will include DOT rules & regulations, truck/trailer inspections, driver MVR review, driver files, safer reports, driver road tests, cargo security.

We will also cover the parts of the NHSaves Program and EnergyStar Homes.

When it Hits the Fan
“When it hits the fan,” is about the day that a claim happens. More specifically, a big claim, or one that looks small but grows larger each day. Many companies have not experienced a severe incident, or any incident. We want to go over the tools for reporting a claim and controlling costs associated with a claim. We will discuss Workers Compensation, General Liability and even Auto claims.
