Who does workers’ compensation protect?

Workers’ compensation protects both the employer and employee.  Employers are protected when they need to pay for and employee’s work-related injuries or illnesses. It protects employees by providing indemnity for lost wages arising from work-related loss or injury.

At SynchronoSure, we have a broad appetite for small account workers’ compensation risks:

Henry David Thoreau once said, “The keeping of bees is like the direction of sunlight.” But honey farmers out there would agree that working in an apiary, known as a bee yard, does not always look like happily working under the sunshine.

An apiary is where bees are kept and nurtured to produce honey. Working in the apiary can be seriously dangerous. Other than being stung, honey farmers and drivers can be at risk with backaches, sprains and strains due to lifting heavy honey supers. Getting into poison ivy or poison oak, or mild to severe allergic reaction to bee venom are other hazards that they may encounter. All of these requires immediate medical attention.

SynchronoSure®’s Workers’ Compensation program offers medical coverage for the workers in this industry. We protect the employers by paying what they need to pay for the medical services that the injured employee needs. And we also protect the employees by giving indemnity for lost wages due to inability to work.
