Workers' Comp. and Employee Safety

Risk management – because safety is good business.

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.

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.

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.
