What happens if someone uses your intellectual properties online? 🤔

What happens if someone uses your intellectual properties online? 🤔

With the internet being so vast and anonymous, it’s not uncommon to see anyone try and use your words or your trademarked logos for themselves online.

This could be anything from your corporate website, your blog, or even your trademarked logo.

You may find one day that your own company has had any of these used to promote another company or to try and defame your company in the eyes of potential clients in the digital realm. 

We know what you’re thinking. “I have coverage that protects my material from this kind of theft. I don’t need anything more.” In truth, the policies you have probably don’t cover intellectual property theft online unless that policy specifically deals in cyber liability.

This is why GDI provides a vast amount of cyber liability coverage. Many companies don’t provide coverage for what happens to your company in the cyber realm, but as companies deal more of their business online, you’ll wish you had policies in place that kept your company safe in the face of online danger.

It’s important to protect the reputation of your business, even when it comes to your online presence. Don’t let your company become another victim of online intellectual property theft. The time to defend is always now.

How often have you found your intellectual property being used without authorization?

How much does heat illness affect your employees?

How much does heat illness affect your employees?

The truth is, heat illness is a completely preventable illness as long as you know how to take care of yourself in the heat.

Despite this, the CDC reports that 658 people every year succumb to heat illness. 

We know that following every single rule and regulation regarding working outdoors can be a lot to handle, but it helps to emphasize why including the symptoms of heat illness and how to prevent it in your yearly safety and compliance training is so important.

As long as heat illness is a danger to your employees and a potential liability to your company, then rules and regulations surrounding it will always need to be enforced.

These could be regulations like:

🟢 Providing clean water to your workers while they’re working outside.

🟢 Encouraging your workers to drink more water as the heat index continues to rise.

🟢 Providing a source of shade to your team while they are working on an outdoor job site.

Truth be told, OSHA doesn’t put these rules in place for their own health. They do it for the safety of your staff. Your team is the backbone of your company. They keep your business afloat through thick and thin.

So doesn’t it make more sense to train them on how to keep themselves hydrated and cool when the heat bears down on them?

On top of that, you could face a hefty fine from OSHA if you don’t educate your team on outdoor job safety or don’t follow these regulations at all.

It just goes to show, the benefits of safety and compliance training, especially around heat illness, greatly outweigh anything else.

But gaining the materials you need to properly train them can be difficult, and planning your safety compliance training can become a hassle.

That’s why GDI offers all of their clients free access to our vast library of resources of safety and compliance training materials.

At GDI, we want to see your business thrive. That means helping you keep your employees as safe as we can and helping them out when disaster strikes. 

We want to see the people who keep your business running on their feet for as long as we can help keep them that way, that’s why we encourage every one of our clients to train their staff in annual safety and compliance training.

We can think of any better encouragement than giving you all the tools you need to get the job done.

Safety and Compliance Training 101

Safety and Compliance Training 101

✅ True or false? 🚫

Safety and compliance training has a very small effect on how your employees do their job.

That statement couldn’t be more false!

In reality, everyone in the workforce takes rules and regulations more seriously in their jobs when they are exposed to safety and compliance training.

There is a statistical link between your team’s involvement in safety culture and the amount of hazards that occur on job sites.

Basically, if you involve your team in a more safety conscious culture, then they will pay more attention to safety on the job.

For you, that means you’ll be less liable, and your company’s insurance premiums will be lower as a result. 

For them, that means that they can go home to their families without injury or worry.

It just goes to show, when you promote safety in the workplace, then you’re going to get safety in return.

So it’s important to start asking the big question.

How much is safety promoted in your company?

Communication is Key When Disaster Strikes Your Business

Communication is Key When Disaster Strikes Your Business

Who should you communicate with when a disaster strikes your business?

One of the biggest factors you need to consider after a disaster strikes your business is communicating the disaster to the people necessary.

Your staff and customers are the top priority in terms of communication because you need to keep your staff informed and your customers comfortably knowledgeable during times of crisis.

Your staff is crucial to communicate with, because they have to know how changes in operations will occur and how they will have to continue their duties. This is key to keeping your ship running during times of emergency.

That doesn’t mean that your customers shouldn’t be informed. When a disaster occurs, and your customers are left in the dark about what’s going on, they don’t know if they’re investment into your business will still be worth their time.

Your customers need to know that everything is under control and that your business will continue with them once the dust has settled. Otherwise, they may end up turning to the competition.

Communication is key when it comes to running your business, especially in an emergency situation. Never leave anyone in the dark when your business is in jeopardy. 

How would you communicate with your staff and customers in a time of crisis?
