Insurance Baton Rouge

In today’s ever changing business world, every business needs quality employees to help the business meet client demand, grow revenue, and manage risk. Today’s growing businesses need to understand the importance of an effective business insurance program. Workers’ Compensation insurance is a central part of that program.

There are at least five kinds of employees that define today’s Louisiana workers.

Temporary worker--Businesses are using temporary workers at an increased rate. Employers must comply with updated labor and OSHA regulations. Temporary workers face a much higher injury rate than do regular employees.

Contractors--Some businesses use contractors to try to get around labor laws, workers’ compensation, and unemployment statutes. Both the State and Federal Governments are cracking down on these practices, and have established new definitions and guidelines as to how employees are defined.

First job employees--Lack of experience and training can lead to increased injury rates among new employees.

Seasonal employees--Long work hours and little to no training increases risk of injury and loss to employers.

Shift workers--If your business operates three shifts you may not have the same attention to safety during the 2nd or 3rd shift. Make sure all staff receives the same training.

We are ready to help you better understand your risks. Please call our office today. With Fourrier Agency, there is 65 years of service and support that needs to be upheld.  That service is upheld to every client, every day.
