Do you know Construction kills one in five workers
Around half of serious workplace injuries aren’t reported. And one fatal injury costs an average of $991,027 in hospital costs.
Insure your people. Insure your future.
Prevention should be your first line of defense against workplace accidents. But even the best plans by the most vigilant companies can’t reduce injuries to zero.
Spending money saves lives and money.
People are often fond of saying, "you've got to spend money to make money." And while it may seem counterintuitive, this is true in many cases, particularly when it comes to your workers' health and safety.
The first year is the deadliest.
Sixty percent of construction injuries occur within an employee’s first year on the job.
This makes a lot of sense. Job site safety often comes down to knowledge and muscle memory, two things new employees don’t have yet.
Are you afraid of workers comp?
As a small business trying to survive the ups and downs of the construction industry, it can be scary to think about workers comp costs. And for good reason.
This one thing leads to business growth.
If you could only afford to do one thing to grow your business, it should always be to invest in your employees. But we’re not talking about salaries, although that’s important, too. No, the investment you should focus on goes deeper than the paycheck.
These people will build your business.
You work as hard on your business as you do in your business. For you, it’s not a 9 to 5. There are no holidays. But as hard as you work, it’s your employees who will determine the long-term success of the dream you’re building.
How do you lower costs and grow your business?
It’s a proven fact that better and more frequent training, regular inspections and regular health and safety meetings with construction supervisors result in lower costs, fewer lost-time injuries and more profits.
So if you want to grow your business, you certainly need to take care of these basics. The other thing you need to do is make sure you have the right insurance coverage. Because no matter how much you plan, you can’t eliminate risk. And just one incident could be enough to close you down for good.
Take the long-term view of your business by taking out the right amount of insurance for your jobs and crew. So in addition to reducing your costs, you can also reduce your risks.
It’s simple to move your business forward.
The secret to success is quite obvious. All you have to do is take the complexity out of your business to make growth simpler. Of course just because something is obvious doesn’t mean it’s easy.
For instance, your job site is filled with powerful machinery, heavy tools, high surfaces and people. It’s obvious that this combination requires specialized insurance coverage to keep your business moving forward. But understanding what you need isn’t always so easy.
That’s why we’re here. We make getting and maintaining the right level of insurance for your construction business as simple as a phone call, an email or even a text. So let’s move your business forward.
