Risk Management for Offices
At Travelers, we understand that our office-based customers face a variety of risks to their employees, customers, vendors, property and business. Our Risk Control team has the resources to help prevent or mitigate losses for offices ranging from law and accountancy firms to financial institutions. Our risk control support includes:
Ergonomic Risk Control for Offices
Ergonomics is a science that enhances the relationship between people, tasks, equipment and environment in the workplace. Making ergonomic improvements helps the workplace fit the capabilities of the worker, minimising their injuries and maximising their productivity.
Business Continuity Planning
Is your business prepared for a crisis? To protect it, you need a robust business continuity plan that includes more than just emergency responses, insurance policies and data recovery processes. Your plan should identify key personnel and processes to restore the business if it is interrupted and outline steps for preventing and mitigating risks.
Preventing Slips, Trips and Falls
Slips, trips and falls can cause significant injury to your employees and visitors to your office premises, but you can prevent accidents through routine inspections and maintenance. Design entrances and walkways to accommodate expected foot traffic, illuminate them properly, and secure all mats. If an accident occurs, investigate the situation promptly and document your findings.
Preventing Electrical Fires
Faulty electrical systems are among the leading causes of workplace fires. To ensure they don’t happen, take precautions such as repairing or replacing damaged cables and exposed wiring, using extension cords only temporarily, and not overloading sockets with multi-adapters. Hire a specialist to inspect and maintain your electrical installation and office equipment.
