Safety Doesn’t Cost — It Pays!
Businesses have a legal and moral responsibility to provide a safe workplace environment for their employees. Regardless of the steps you take, accidents happen. When an employee is injured on the job, whether on or off the workplace premises, the business is responsible for providing compensation. Many business owners don’t realize that if an employee becomes ill or is disabled due to a work-related situation, the company is liable for claims.
In almost every state, workers compensation insurance is required.
