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:
There are various risks and hazards in working in a nursery. The most common injuries are sprains, lower back and shoulder strains due to manual handling. In some other instances, a nursery worker can accidentally step on a slippery or wet floor after a floor has been washed, or there can be a water split in the kitchen or in the toilettes, or if spillages are not cleaned up right away. Whether in the plant production or in handling machineries, different risks can occur anytime. You need to have workmans’ compensation.
As a farm nursery business owner, you must be ready in dealing with such job-related accidents and unfortunate conditions. Given that your business uses farming tools and equipment, your workers are in a higher risk injury and accident. SynchronoSure®’s Workers’ Compensation is made to protect your business from the financial loss because of an injured or sick employee, or if a lawsuit is filed against your company.
