In any organization, regardless of the industry, maintaining employee safety should be a top priority. While workers’ compensation might not be at the forefront of the assumed necessary policies, nonprofit administrators should understand the need for the right coverage. Simply put, Nonprofit Workers’ Compensation insurance is designed to protect your clients’ business, their employees, and their bottom line.
All employers, nonprofit or otherwise, have a large role to play in providing a safe and healthy workplace. In fact, due to the Health and Safety Act of 1992, employers are required to:
- Ensure employees are properly trained and supervised to perform their duties safely.
- Proactively work to provide a safe environment.
- Identify known hazards in order to prevent or eliminate injury.
It’s important to note the implications of a workplace injury. Not only does it affect the injured worker and their families, but it also contributes to a loss of productivity and profit for the business. Therefore, providing a safe workplace with the above mentioned strategies can reduce physical distress for the employee and keep morale up for the business.
Oftentimes, common risks are overlooked in order to get the job done. However, whether it’s safely commuting to events, managing crowds, or implementing proper ergonomics to prevent office injuries, these liabilities need to be acknowledged by your clients. As workers’ compensation claims are known to be expensive, these simple practices can ensure that your client prevents them from occurring in the first place.
