Webinar: Three of the Biggest Liability Risks Facing Public Entities and What HR Managers Can Do About Them
Recorded On: 10/19/2023
Costly claims can be devastating to a city or municipality. According to the National Safety Council, the average workers' compensation claim costs more than $40,000 per incident. In addition to workers' comp issues, public entities face tremendous liability from harassment claims and other lawsuits.
HR managers know these risks well, but how can they defend their organizations? This webinar will address three of the most significant threats facing cities and municipalities: vehicle accidents, slips, trips and falls, and harassment claims. We will discuss the latest information and statistics around workers' comp, what's at stake for cities and municipalities, and how they can better protect themselves with dynamic training.
This webinar will cover the following:
How a public entity can protect its bottom line by ensuring personnel who operate city-owned vehicles are adequately trained and licensed
- How cities can effectively train employees and reduce claims from slips, trips, and fall incidents
- How harassment prevention training can help ensure compliance and reduce liability
- How public entities can schedule, deliver, and track valuable training that addresses these three costly risks using Vector Solutions
