Cooperstown, NY (PRWEB) November 14, 2011
The team at local Bob Putnam Agency knows that making a living isn’t easy for most people. While some jobs may be tedious or stressful, others can be flat out dangerous. But regardless of what the job is, someone has to do it. For this reason, many employers offer workers compensation as part of their employee benefits package, which helps pay injured employees who are unable to work. When it comes to offering workers compensation, New York companies need to have insurance that will fund these claims so that the business is not paying the injured employee out of pocket.
While all local companies should have insurance coverage for workers compensation, those that have their employees performing some of the most dangerous jobs in America should definitely have this insurance in place. Three of the most hazardous occupations include:
- Sanitation workers
- Truck drivers/delivery personnel
With insurance for workers compensation, New York companies that operate within these industries won’t have to worry about incurring financial problems due to workers compensation claims, so they can focus on improving workplace safety for their employees. While these are some of the most dangerous jobs, any occupation can have its dangers, so local businesses should consider taking out workers compensation coverage in addition to their business insurance policies.
