Workers' Comp for the Manufacturing Industry

Rhode Island has a rich history in manufacturing, with industries ranging from textiles to shipbuilding to jewelry. The sector plays a vital role in the region's economy but with the manufacturing industry comes a variety of workplace injuries and safety concerns that need to be addressed to ensure the health and well-being of employees.

Some of the most common workplace injuries in the manufacturing industry include slips, trips, and falls; repetitive motion injuries; and accidents involving machinery and equipment. Employers can take steps to prevent these injuries by implementing safety protocols such as regular equipment maintenance, machine guarding, providing proper training to employees, and ensuring that the work environment is free of hazards.

Beacon is proud to serve numerous manufacturers throughout Rhode Island and neighboring communities. Our experience has given us a deep understanding of what it takes to keep your workplace safe. Our focus is on proactively preventing frequent incidents such as slips, trips, and falls, as well as repetitive motion injuries and accidents related to machinery and equipment.

For 30 years, we have been providing workers' compensation insurance to the majority of manufacturers in Rhode Island. We know the industry and the challenges  your company faces, and our team is here to support you and your employees.

Developing a Safety Program

Manufacturing can be a hazardous industry, with many potential risks such as exposure to hazardous materials, working with heavy machinery, and working at heights. By creating a safety program, companies can identify and mitigate these risks, ensuring that their employees can work safely.

Teaching your workers to lift and stretch properly can prepare them for physical work, increase their comfort and efficiency, and reduce the risk of injury. Since 1995, Beacon has been training workers on the skills necessary to implement a basic Stretch for Safety program into their daily routine.
