POLICYHOLDER SAFETY SERVICES

THE ENCOVA ADVANTAGE

At Encova, we take a proactive and consultative approach to reducing workplace injuries. Our goal is to help your company create a culture of safety in the workplace that leads to fewer accidents and more productive employees. While this will lower your workers’ compensation costs, the greatest benefit is reducing the huge organizational cost of workplace injuries.

 

GET AHEAD OF RISKS THAT COULD DISRUPT BUSINESS.

Every company has the opportunity to experience loss. We want to give you the opportunity to anticipate those losses before they happen.

Encova has quality insurance solutions to keep you protected in the event that something with your business goes wrong. With our safety services, we take the extra step to protect you before that event takes place.

Our safety and loss control team partners with your business to create safer environments for your employees and customers and protect business assets from damage or loss. This proactive approach aims to help you avoid filing claims in the first place. Fewer claims can help you save on the cost of your overall policy. 

Our safety services are designed to reduce exposure to loss and strengthen your approach to safety.

 

POLICYHOLDER SERVICES

Our on-site safety and loss control assessment identifies potential hazards or exposures that can result in employee injuries and provides solutions for the hazards or exposures identified.

Fleet safety should be a high priority whether your operation is small or large. Fleet safety starts with a strong fleet safety policy and an emphasis on driver selection, vehicle maintenance and defensive driving training. We can assist with designing a fleet safety policy and program, evaluating existing fleet safety policies/procedures, developing driver selection procedures and providing resources for defensive driver training.

Product liability is often an overlooked risk exposure. Product liability exposures are present anytime a company manufactures or directly imports a proprietary part or product; an original equipment manufacturer product is significantly altered, changed, installed or serviced/repaired; and a product is damaged in storage or shipping. We can assist with the evaluation of the potential for product liability claims by reviewing your operations and products to identify potential product liability exposures.

We evaluate processes, work stations and methods in your operation that present exposures to cumulative trauma disorders, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back injuries and other related conditions and provide solutions for the exposures identified.

The protection of your facilities from fire, explosions and other perils is a high priority, as many businesses do not recover from these types of loss. We will provide evaluation of your facility, including identification of potential fire hazards; evaluation of fire protection, detection and suppression systems; and a review of fire prevention measures.

Businesses have varying degrees of public liability. Businesses that have members of the general public on their premises on a regular basis have a higher degree of liability, and thus incur a higher degree of responsibility for the safety of their customers. We will evaluate the premises to identify potential liability hazards and/or exposures, including conditions of sidewalks, parking lots and entryways; floor conditions; emergency egress; and many other potential sources of liability. We’ll offer recommendations to improve controls or reduce hazards or exposures.
