Safety is good for business. We all know the human costs of injuries and accidents in the workplace, and we promote safety as a core value. Processing recycling materials requires the use of heavy machinery that can pose serious jeopardy to operators, especially if they are not fully trained or the machinery is not properly serviced. Over the past 25 years we’ve collected data on thousands of workers’ compensation insurance losses, and we track and evaluate the loss experience across many different segmentations.
Implicit costs caused by workplace injuries and accidents include lost productivity, missed opportunities, lower workplace morale, employee turnover, reduced ability to attract talent, and negative impacts on the industry’s reputation and community relations. Explicit costs can include investigation and legal expenses, fines, penalties, settlements or judgments, insurance policy deductibles, and property replacement costs. Our Workers’ Compensation program is built around the concept of providing you with industry specific loss control and risk management services - helping you find optimal protection for your insureds.
Amwins Program Underwriters’ (APU) AmeriComp Recycling insurance program has partnered with APU’s RecycleGuard program (the only property & casualty insurance program sponsored by ISRI) to leverage their deep knowledge of the scrap industry and provide a workers’ compensation solution for ISRI members.
