Risk Control and Injury Prevention

Prevention is a key component of both a total health and productivity strategy and workers’ compensation cost mitigation. Our focus on accident and injury prevention through the creation of a safe work environment—whether in a conventional office, manufacturing plant, health care facility, university, or other type of job site—has saved clients money on claims and reduced time away from work, which improved productivity.

We feel there absolutely is a direct correlation between the risk control services we provide and our clients’ reduction in loss activity. Through savvy risk management practices, we can provide opportunities for organizations like yours to protect employees while reducing workers’ compensation costs.

We take the time to understand your specific goals, design a program that fits your needs, and implement customized risk control services that factor in the nuances of your work environment, employees, and company culture. We work with you to analyze injury trends, injury types, and accident causes. We identify key cost drivers and provide strategic feedback to develop and enhance an effective safety and loss prevention program unique to your work environment.
