3 Reasons P&C and Benefits Agents Must Work Together
April 26, 2022

As a broker, you’re always trying to find ways to reduce losses for your clients and in turn keeping rates low. One of the most common areas brokers work with employers in all industries on addressing is workplace safety. Property and casualty brokers can help clients become aware of and prevent potential hazards in their workplaces as well as better understand what their insurance covers in the case of illness or injury. As a benefits broker, you can help clients reevaluate short-term and long-term disability plans in addition to health coverage.  

No matter what type of broker you are, you can extend the value you provide to your clients by reducing their risk of safety incidents and helping them comply with applicable safety regulations.  

Safety doesn’t happen by accident 

So, how do you help your small and medium sized employers mitigate the risk of workplace safety hazards and comply with safety regulations? They typically don’t have the resources to manage human resources, compliance, and health and safety all on their own. Nor do they have the budget to spend on stand-alone safety resources that larger companies can offer their employees. 

With Employee Health & Safety from Mineral, you can offer safety training and resources right-sized for small businesses and integrated with HR compliance tools, alongside personalized advice and guidance from HR, legal, and safety experts.
