What Kind of Workers’ Compensation Services Do We Offer?
At PMC, we offer several national specialized workers’ compensation programs that can be customized in different ways. These include:
Workers’ Compensation for Trucking and Transportation
The trucking business has unique workplace perils that warrant special workers’ comp coverage. Besides road accidents, truckers are at a higher risk of developing health issues, such as musculoskeletal and back injuries, due to strenuous activities like loading and unloading heavy cargo.
Workers’ Compensation for Healthcare and Home Health
Homecare and health caregivers face a range of risks at work, including exposure to radioactive material, hazardous chemicals, and potential infections. Auto accident injuries and musculoskeletal disorders are also common among homecare specialists. Such healthcare businesses can benefit from our custom-tailored worker’s comp plans, to suit their unique risk profiles. PMC offers creative solutions for this industry, with flexible terms, such as deductibles and guaranteed cost options.
Workers’ Compensation for Staffing Services
The law requires corporate staffing agencies to provide workers’ compensation coverage for each individual they offer to a third party for employment. Risk levels vary based on several factors, including industry and profession, and it’s necessary to get each employee the right amount of insurance protection. If you’re an insurance agent with staffing agency clients, you should be familiar with the coverage options available for diverse risk classifications. Your relevant industry expertise and partnering with experienced workers’ compensation specialists at PMC, will help your clients get adequate protection for their employees.
Workers’ Compensation for Construction Services
Construction workers face a high risk of severe injuries or even sudden death. Falls from height, auto accidents, trench collapses, and motion injuries are only a handful of the hazards that come with physically demanding labor.
Contractors need special workers’ comp coverages to cover the medical bills of their injured employees. These costs can be too heavy to bare out-of-pocket.
USL&H Workers’ Compensation
For businesses with maritime workers, it isn’t enough to have a standard workers’ compensation policy. The U.S. Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, requires employers in this industry to get special bodily injury coverage for their workers. Companies operating near or over waterways, such as bridge construction, ship repair, or harbor operations, should carry USL&H coverage.
Workers’ Compensation for Social Services
Human services and social services workers aren’t immune to on-the-job injuries either. Whether working for senior citizens’ centers, youth centers, or homeless shelters, employees can suffer a work-related injuries, sickness, or even physical abuse. Carrying adequate workers’ compensation will come in handy, in such circumstances.
