Workplace Safety Training Resources

Specializing in risk management solutions that improve employee safety

Making Workplace Safety a Priority 

Protecting a company’s most valuable asset – its employees – is of utmost importance. Promoting workplace safety to help reduce employee injuries and expensive claims is one way to help keep your workforce healthy and productive, and keep your premiums down.

Loss control is designed to help prevent or reduce the possibility of a loss, or to help reduce its severity if one does occur. Companies are creating workplace safety programs as a way to invest in their company’s safety while at the same time improving employee welfare. Companies that devote resources to workplace safety training believe losses from accidents are risks that can be prevented, so taking the steps to prevent them is seen as an investment for the health of the company.

AmTrust provides free training videos to its insured, as well as a variety of informative articles on workplace safety to answer any questions you may have and to help keep safety top of mind. To access our PDF library on workplace safety, scroll to the bottom.
