Do you know the proper way to report an accident in the workplace? Taking shortcuts and delaying the reporting of a claim can lead to serious consequences and this can be very costly to your business.

In this video, Vice President of Claims Brigitte Becker talks about the most important things you should do when an accident occurs.

This video teaches the employer: 

  • What not to do when the employee informs you of an accident
  • The five most important things an employer should do to address the employee’s current situation
  • How to avoid state fines
  • Preserving evidence that may have contributed to the accident

It's your responsibility as a business owner to ensure your employees are taken care of in the event of an accident. Regardless of the cause or reason for the accident, make sure you are taking appropriate steps to manage the situation.
