Our Agriculture Insurance Tools Will Put You in the Driver’s Seat!
Our agency can help you build solid loss control and safety programs to help you stay on top of your biggest risk management and compliance challenges, such as:
Interactive Risk Analysis Tools
Use these multifunctional tools to evaluate various pain points that are unique to the agriculture industry. Many of these tools can be customized for your organization’s specific needs, so you can see how your business is faring and learn ways to manage your risk exposures.
Injury and Illness Investigation Programs
Make sure that falls, chemical exposures and other injuries only cost you a single time. These resources can help you establish best practices for investigating the true sources of agriculture incidents and reduce the chance of costly reoccurrences.
OSHA, the Department of Agriculture and other federal agencies often release rules specific to the agriculture industry, and mismanaging compliance topics can lead to costly fines and a tarnished reputation. Use these attorney-written compliance tools to understand your obligations and make sure your business stays in compliance.
Response Plans and Programs
To ensure your long-term success, your business needs to be ready to respond to a number of common agriculture and farming risk exposures. These programs and response plans can help you and your employees be ready for a wide variety of scenarios, such as heat illnesses, vehicle rollovers, equipment malfunctions and silo emergencies.
Employee Safety Communications
Promote various workplace topics with hundreds of employee-facing resources, including flyers, articles, bulletins and guides that will help keep health and safety top of mind.
OSHA Compliance Program for Agribusiness
Does your broker provide you with timely updates on new and revised OSHA regulations?
OSHA constantly updates its standards and requirements, and even a single update can drastically impact the construction industry and your regular operations. We can provide you with attorney-reviewed documents that outline your obligations, making it easy for you to focus on your agribusiness projects instead of complicated OSHA rules.
Are you prepared for an Unannounced OSHA inspection?
If an OSHA inspection finds violations at one of your construction sites, you could face fines and watch your reputation plummet. We can offer you agriculture-specific compliance resources and inspection guides to help you address potential issues before they occur.
Does your Agriculture business comply with OSHA’s hazard communication standards?
Agriculture employees often have to work with or around hazardous substances, and even one incident can lead to serious injuries and costly fines. Our clients have access to agriculture-specific toolbox talks and articles, as well as workplace posters and hazard communication programs that can ensure your business is compliant with OSHA standards.
