When you live in a coastal state like Rhode Island, we worry about high winds, flooding, and power outages.

This week’s recent storm has created widespread power outages throughout Rhode Island and tree service businesses are working overtime to help utility companies restore power to our state.

If you’re one of these business owners, you’re also responsible for your company and the safety of your workers. That’s why we’ve put together some helpful tips for you and your employees to stay safe after a storm.

We’re here if you need us. We are Rhode Islanders too. We are here to provide exceptional workers’ compensation services when you need us most.
