“It may be because students are hired on a temporary basis that businesses don’t think about the impact of a student incurring an injury on the job,” said Debra Hetzer, PEMCO’s director of risk management. “But even these temporary employees are eligible for workers’ compensation, so it’s important that they understand the potential safety risks at a particular business, and how they can stay safe on the job.”

“Promoting a company culture of safety is best for all employees,” said Hetzer. “That’s why we encourage our clients to provide safety training to everyone who works for them. Reinforcing safe habits encourages employees to think about staying safe during job tasks, which can protect the employee and help reduce risk for the business.”
