PHCC insurance provider Federated Insurance now offers online tools for employers to make their companies safer.

Available to all Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors National Association members, the company’s safety resources program offers guidelines, training, checklists, logs and other resources related to hazard prevention and control, safety and health planning, and other construction-specific safety topics.

There are other sections available, such as workplace analysis, hazard prevention and control, safety and health planning and other special topics and programs, with a Federated Insurance log-in.

“PHCC members can customize these basics of a safety program to begin building a company program that fits their needs,” said PHCC President Laurie Crigler. “Not only will this formalized process help them comply with laws and regulations, it also sends a positive message to their employees that ‘We’re a culture that cares about our employees, and here’s how we do it.’” 

Dave Szymanski, vice president and director of association risk management services for Federated Insurance, said it’s a good first step for safety.

“This sample introductory program, extracted from a comprehensive safety program available to Federated clients, is a great starting point,” Szymanski said.
