What is Workers Compensation?
Sometimes referred to as workmans comp insurance, workers compensation coverage is a type of insurance coverage that helps cover medical costs, rehabilitation costs, and lost wages for employees who are injured or become ill performing duties related to their jobs. It also provides Employers Liability coverage to the employer for their liability for work related bodily injury or disease.
While there are many benefits of this type of coverage for employees, there are also many benefits to employers as well. The most notable is the fact that it works to reduce lawsuits in the event that employees are injured on the job and unable to work for an extended period of time.
That’s not the only benefit, though. Most employees appreciate the peace of mind this type of insurance coverage provides. This means better morale among employees.
The other benefit to consider is that employees who know their medical costs are covered are more likely to get the treatment they need so they can return to work sooner.
Reducing Workers Compensation Insurance Costs
Because this type of insurance is mandatory, it’s important that businesses make every effort to keep the costs of coverage as low as possible. There are a few things you can do to help mitigate these costs while still providing outstanding coverage to your employees. These steps will help tremendously.
- Improve safety in the workplace.
- Create policies that promote safety.
- Educate employees about safety tactics and techniques.
- Invest in proper safety equipment for high-risk employees.
- Set an example for employees to follow.
- Compare plans and prices.
- Bundle business policies along with workers compensation insurance.
Businesses today have plenty to worry about financially. Working with an independent insurance agency can help you find the right plans for your business at the right price.
