    Thomas Rupp, benefits advisor, is available to assist you in determining the best healthcare coverage for your new or established business.

    Slip and fall accidents are a leading cause of injury across many industry segments including health care, manufacturing, retail and general office environments. Parking lots and sidewalks can quickly become unsafe, especially during winter months, if regular maintenance is not performed. But these hazards don’t stop at your business’s front door. “Snow and water tracked indoors during winter can make entrances, reception areas and stairwells extra slippery, significantly increasing the likelihood of interior slips and falls,” says Jason Vandeberghe, commercial advisor with Brown & Brown. “Creating a company culture where every employee is watchful for these conditions is a great way to help reduce the risk.”
