EHS Software for Brokers that Supports Insureds’ Safety Program
The Risk Management Center helps brokers provide value-added resources to their insureds which help reduce risk and in turn, reduce claims. Property & casualty resources like incident and claims management, online compliance training, audits and inspections, and behavior-based safety programs available in the Risk Management Center help them manage their liability.
“This year has refocused the spotlight back on businesses to ensure their employees’ safety and protect their liability. Risk Management Center’s training courses are an important piece of a safety and compliance program that can build a strong culture to reduce risk and improve their business operations,” said Kathryn Carlson, Vice President of Product Management at KPA.
KPA’s compliance training program has grown along with its online software capabilities. The catalog of award-winning compliance training courses now spans hundreds of courses, often available in both English and Spanish. The interactive nature and topic range of KPA’s courses are crucial for various industries that must provide employee training to comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) or state agency requirements.
