Employees must be engaged and committed to accident prevention, and IMA is available to help you develop presentations for conventions, conferences or meetings.
OSHA, DOT, MSHA and EPA Compliance
Managing and tracking training programs are critical to comply with federal and state regulations. With IMA, you’ll stay informed on the latest compliance updates and have access to a database of safety programs and presentations that can be customized to your company.
Drivers safety programs
Drivers can be a major liability for your organization. Employees driving on company business are the second-highest source of insurance claims. IMA defensive driving education, MVR review programs, driver monitoring and substance abuse testing can be tailored to help you manager your fleet’s safety and stay in compliance with DOT regulations.
Chronic occupational diseases such as silicosis, hearing loss and contact dermatitis are controllable and can be reduced through surveillance, training and engineering controls. IMA is trained to recognize and minimize these hazards so your risks of a claim are reduced.
Safety and wellness integration
Despite an organization’s best efforts to manage occupational injuries, poor employee general health and wellness can substantially increase the length of an absence from work and the cost of the claim. Together with IMA’s claims and health risk management (Life IQ) teams, you’ll have access to cutting-edge programs that integrate safety and wellness to control the medical and indemnity costs of claims.
IMA also gives clients access to an ergonomist. Their proven approaches for education and work station evaluations can be easily incorporated into your current safety procedures.
Fires, workplace violence, employee injuries and natural disasters – these are just some of the most common situations that can affect your business through a damaged reputation, loss of customers and reduction in revenue. Responding quickly and confidently in a crisis situation can be the difference between ruining your company’s reputation and emerging as a responsible organization with good leadership.
Crisis planning in no longer just good business. Having a crisis plan is a business imperative, and it’s required of vendors who supply Fortune 500 companies.
IMA has introduced the crisis management guide as part of its commitment to help protect your assets. As roadmap to navigate the issues inherent in a crisis, the guide helps your company develop a plan that addresses three key areas:
- Emergency response
- Media management
- Disaster recovery
IMA’s crisis management guide can be customized to form your company’s own crisis management and emergency response plan. Because the risks your business faces are unique, IMA can adjust your plan to prepare for the issues specific to your company and industry. A good crisis management plan should:
- Protect your reputation
- Prevent losing customers
- Support your employees
- Avoid reductions in revenue
- Contain unbudgeted expenditures
