Build safety into every workday

Build safety into every workday

Safety is more than a poster in the break room. It needs to become embedded in the culture of your business.

Keeping workers safe and productive should be the goal of every company. Yet in 2012, nearly three million non-fatal workplace injuries were reported. That represents an average of three injuries for 100 workers.¹

When employees understand that your company values safety, it helps assure them that their skills and their lives are also valued.

Safety takes planning, but planning is not enough. Safety plans must be adopted, communicated, implemented, practiced and monitored. At Travelers, we help companies like yours by providing resources to help you better understand your risk and manage the exposure.
