The numbers are startling. In 2014, there were almost 3 million U.S. workplace injuries and illnesses in the private industry. That’s a rate of 3.2 cases for every 100 full-time employees. That same year, 4,679 workers were killed on the job, according to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA).

 

As a business owner, we know your employees are important to you. That’s why the professionals at Millhiser Smith are here to help you protect them.

 

One of the ways to safeguard your business is by making safety and health a priority. We analyze your workplace risks and develop a plan to reduce workplace accidents.

 

According to the Institute of Risk Management, mitigating loss potential involves understanding, analyzing and addressing risk to make sure organizations achieve their objectives.

 

Along with managing risk, Millhiser Smith believes in being proactive and progressive. That’s why we also offer prevention programs to change the workplace culture.

 

We offer a wide variety of risk improvement, workplace wellness, and loss control services. Our goal is to help you develop a safe and OSHA compliant workplace. At Millhiser Smith, we’ll also help you reduce the frequency of injury claims, thereby boosting your risk management profile.
