National Safety Month Provides Unique Opportunities to Insured Companies

June 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 160

Insurance premiums can be affected significantly by accidents and injuries at the workplace. Disability and compensation claims are factored into the insurance quotes provided to a company. As a result, an event such as National Safety Month offers insurance agents and business owners to inspire staff members to work safely in hopes of reducing injuries and as a result, insurance costs. From the front office to the warehouse, companies can take stock of their safety procedures as well as training protocols. Insurance representatives can guide owners and human resource staff on how to make the most out of the event. Meetings, reminders and new procedures can help keep a workplace safe and insurance cost low.

Educate - The entire month of June is dedicated to safety, giving ample opportunity to coordinate a safety meeting. Insurance agents can work with owners, outlining some of the key topics to cover in a safety meeting. Using real life examples from outside of and within the organization, company safety officers can describe the right and wrong way of performing tasks. Educational materials such as slide guides, pocket tip cards and documentation from the insurance company can be distributed to reference during the presentation.

Reinforce - Reminders are a great way of engaging staff members during safety meetings as well as reinforcing the topics throughout the year. Low cost, budget friendly giveaways such as stress balls, key chains and even lunch bags can carry an insurance company's logo along with a reminder slogan to reinforce the safety message. The example of "Always Stress Safety" along with a corporate logo transforms a promotional product into a useful safety tool.

Implement - June is a great time to launch safety initiatives. Companies can work in tandem with insurance representatives to promote a new safety protocol or goal. Unveiling a "days without accident" banner with commentary on how achieving benchmarks will benefit the business as well as the employees is a perfect rally point. Staff members will feel compelled to "team up for safety" working together to support an initiative may otherwise be lost in formality.

Leveraging opportunities such as National Safety Month to inspire employees to be more mindful of the right and wrong way of performing their jobs can influence a number of positive improvements. Working with insurance companies to formally approach safety issues and education can reduce costs and more importantly reduce injuries. Rather than delivering a memo, organizers can create a system of education, implementation and reinforcement that can be more effective and create better results.
