What is Risk Management?

Risk management encompasses all the steps a company takes to assess and minimize the consequences of potential threats that could impact day-to-day operations. It’s an ongoing, complex, and time-consuming process. Doing it well takes focused attention and specialized expertise.

Two primary sources of risk in any business are workplace safety issues and workers’ compensation claims. Without proper policies and procedures, advance planning, and effective risk management, an adverse event in either of these areas could derail your company’s growth.

As a trusted risk management solutions company and certified professional employer organization (PEO), we save you time, money, worry, and stress, so you can concentrate on growing your core business.

Axcet’s risk management consultants are workers’ compensation and workplace safety experts. When you partner with Axcet – a trusted risk management PEO – you can be confident your employees and business are protected.

Our risk management experts provide comprehensive, pay-as-you-go workers’ compensation insurance, and we adeptly manage any injury claims your company faces. With Axcet, you don’t have to worry about legal compliance or making a mistake that could lower productivity, employee morale, and profits.

If workplace injuries do occur, we take ownership of the claims process, drawing on a thorough knowledge of the workers’ compensation system to reduce our clients’ exposure. Our claims services include counseling clients on injury investigation best practices. We work directly with injured workers, health care providers, insurance adjusters, and, if necessary, attorneys while providing you with status updates every step of the way.

Why Is Managing Risk So Important for your Business?

When your company assesses risk and responds by implementing a risk management plan, your team will both reduce the chance of accidents happening and be prepared to efficiently solve problems if they arise. These steps position your company to resume normal operations more quickly, with the least impact on your bottom line.

Risk Management Solutions for Workplace Safety & Workers' Compensation Claims

Minimizing risks is key to long-term success. Without risk management planning, your company’s future is left to chance – but, like many smaller companies, you may not have risk management expertise in-house. Relying on the experienced risk specialists at Axcet HR Solutions helps keep your employees safe and your company compliant with workplace safety regulations. Axcet’s risk management solutions help small to mid-sized businesses identify and mitigate threats, improve safety and minimize claims losses.

If an accident does occur, we come alongside clients during and afterward and work tirelessly to make sure your business and employees are whole again.

You also have a safer workplace. Our safety team includes a risk manager, claims manager, and safety and health consultant – each with decades of experience to serve you. These professionals support your business by applying best practices and developing customized risk management strategies that enhance safety and mitigate claims losses.

A thorough initial risk assessment is the best starting point for developing a tailored workplace safety plan. When Axcet undertakes that process on your company’s behalf, we identify potential hazards from both safety and regulatory standpoints and then work with you to correct them. Axcet also assists with OSHA inspections, responding to citations, and abating the violations that led to them.

Our customized safety programs are designed to keep your business operating at peak levels while making sure your employees go home safely at the end of each workday. These programs include safety policies and procedures that we develop and help you implement, covering everything from evacuation plans, emergency preparedness, industry-specific safety guidelines, and first aid and CPR training. Axcet’s risk specialists also help you take care of your workers by identifying and correcting ergonomic-related health risks in the workplace.

Why use a PEO for Workers' Comp?

Of course, small business owners never want an employee to get hurt on the job. Still, accidents and illnesses sometimes do happen at work.  That’s why you need workers’ compensation insurance.
Workers’ compensation is available from private insurance carriers or through a state’s assigned risk pool. But there are 7 good reasons your small business should skip both of those options and instead partner with a professional employer organization, or PEO, for workers’ compensation. A PEO’s program offers seven advantages over policies you might get somewhere else.

We are small, and as such, rarely in the eye of a payroll services company. Axcet works with our multiple entities. I want to focus on our business, and they focus on HR for me. Because we are small, I really don't want to have a 'personal' disagreement about PTO or vacation pay, so I set the guidelines, and Axcet manages them, which I love.

Felisha M.

Owner, Insurance Firm

We really appreciate the work you are doing for our tradeshow and exhibit display company. The fun part is we get at least an email a day, phone calls every day, and we see the commercials on tv for something that you have taken care of for us last year. (And, of course, it is in the capable IRS hands now.)

Thanks for making this so easy for us.

Don J.

Turning our admin, payroll, benefits, 401K, workers' compensation, etc., over to Axcet HR has been one of the best decisions that we've ever made: that was back in 2001! We've had 21 great years with Axcet and hope to have 21 more! Axcet has saved us time and LOTS of money but most of all, Axcet HR has allowed us to focus on running our business...because we know, day in, and day out that Axcet has our back!

I burned through a couple of "payroll companies" before I found Axcet. I have yet to encounter anyone at this company that hasn't been friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. Calls are returned amazingly fast and problems are solved without having to make any other calls. This is truly a great company and stellar business partner!

Nita C.

As a non-profit, it's great to have Axcet as a partner to provide all of the employee benefits and HR support that I need so our staff can focus on the core mission of our organization! They have helped me with hiring, navigating benefits enrollment to get our employees the best rates possible, as well as navigating possible employee related tax credits. I love our Axcet team!

Emily D.

CEO, a Kansas City Non-profit

We had tried two other PEOs. Both of which we left after the first year. The level of service that we were accustomed to with Axcet was not there, so we came back to Axcet truly because of the excellent service we always received. Everyone at Axcet would make us feel like we were their only client, like they were sitting there waiting for our call, always friendly and ready to help. 

Lisa C.

VP of Finance, Kansas City Financial Institution

We started working with Axcet in 2018 and they have dramatically increased our internal productivity. We used to spend hours on payroll, HR, benefits, taxes, etc. each week and that is no longer the case. Prior to Axcet, we worked with two other payroll companies and is was a complete mess. Working with Axcet is like having a robust and efficient internal HR department. They have solutions to every problem and we no longer feel lost trying to navigate the payroll landscape. If you want to streamline your business and get out of the HR and payroll weeds, then go with Axcet.

Peyton W.

Owner, Recruitment Firm

Thank you Axcet HR for your assistance with the employee issue. You justified every penny we pay to Axcet through this exercise. I am really glad we have you and Axcet as a resource. It gave me peace of mind, knowing that you would know how to handle these situations the correct way. I really appreciate all the effort put into this to help me stay on course and protect our company.
