All Loss Prevention services are free of charge to our policyholders.
Beacon’s loss prevention consultants work with policyholders to identify and help eliminate hazards in the workplace. Beacon uses OSHA standards as a guide and minimum baseline for identifying unsafe conditions or practices. OSHA is a branch of the federal government charged with enforcing safety standards. OSHA's mission is to assure the safety and health of America's workers by setting and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach, and education; establishing partnerships; and encouraging continual improvement in workplace safety and health.
Even if you have never experienced a claim, the Loss Prevention Department conducts an overall risk assessment for the Underwriting Department. Once your risks are determined, we can assist policyholders through proactive controls, recommendations, resources and training. We believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Yes. Even if your company has a good safety record, safety committees help keep safety a priority. Safety committees can help improve employee awareness levels toward safety by talking about prevention measures. The committee should also be involved with reviewing safety policies and procedures. If your committee is lacking excitement, invite an outside safety person to present to your committee, such as a loss prevention person from Beacon Mutual or your local fire department.
The State of Rhode Island has a good web resource for the RI Fire Codes:
You will need an OSHA 10-Hour Construction card whenever you begin work on any Rhode Island municipal or state job that is $100,000 or more in total contract value. This also includes any employee who visits the site from your company. For instance, you may have a "roving" superintendent or project manager who may visit the job infrequently. He or she is still mandated to have the card. In addition, any of your suppliers or vendors need to have this card even if they are only delivering stock or supplies to the project but have to step or drive inside the footprint of the construction site. The only employees that are exempt are municipal, state, or federal employees.
Employers must conduct a hazard assessment of the workplace prior to placing employees in PPE. OSHA calls this the Workplace Hazard Assessment.
