Avoiding and preventing auto accidents is a risk management objective of every business owner who owns and operates vehicles. ERIE can help you develop and implement policies, practices and training to motivate all your drivers to operate your vehicles safely and to inspect and maintain your vehicles properly.
Your employees may be exposed to a variety of health hazards, such as hazardous chemicals, dusts, mists, fumes, gases, noise, heat, cold and radiation. Our risk control consultants, with assistance from our industrial hygienist, will help you evaluate these hazards and recommend feasible controls and safe workplace practices.
Every business has hazards and risks that can result in property, liability, business income, vehicles and workers’ compensation losses. We can help you identify these risks and suggest measures that are designed to reduce those risks. Our loss control surveys are designed to help you identify the specific hazards or risks at your business and recommend practical and cost-effective controls to reduce potential problems. The loss control surveys can be requested by you, your Agent or our commercial underwriting team.
After your specific business hazards and risks are identified, we can assist you in developing a Risk Management Service Plan. This plan is designed by you and a risk control consultant. The purpose of this plan is to help you reduce your potential risk of loss, reduce your expenses, and implement procedures and programs that assist you in complying with applicable safety regulations.
Every employer is responsible to create a safe and healthy workplace for their employees. Compliance with OSHA or state safety and health regulations is mandatory and significantly reduces the risk of employee accidents, injuries and illnesses. ERIE’s risk control consultants can survey your workplace and recommend policies, programs, procedures, training and methods that may assist you in complying with these regulations.
