How Rhode Island Medical Imaging Keeps Employees Safe

Rhode Island Medical Imaging (RIMI) is currently in their 30th consecutive year as a Beacon Mutual policyholder, and like Rhode Island drivers with low license plate numbers, RIMI has a low policy number. While many might view a “medical office” as having few hazards, the imaging process presents many safety risks such as exposure to radiation and bloodborne pathogens, and the environment may have slip/fall and ergonomic hazards.  

Susan Logan, Chief Human Resources Officer and Janet Hatch, Director of Operations have been the company’s liaisons working with the Beacon Mutual claim and loss prevention representatives. Open lines of communication have facilitated a true trust and working relationship.

“RIMI holds quarterly safety meetings that include leaders from every site,” said Hatch. “We always want to be proactive. ‘If you see something, say something’ is our unofficial motto and that gets everyone involved.”
