Workplace Safety

As an employer, making sure your work environment is up to the proper safety codes is key to keeping operations running smoothly. Proper workplace safety not only protects your employees but will also keep insurance premiums low. Higher premiums increase overhead, and in turn, affects your ability to bid competitively to create new business.

Workers Compensation Experience Modification

Your experience mod number for your worker's compensation policy is a reflection of your claim frequency and severity, and it directly contributes to how much you pay every year. A high experience mod number can keep companies from bidding on jobs by large contractors. Providing a safe workplace is a valuable tool to keep good employees and offer better service to your clients.
