The NFL season is officially in full swing! As local San Diegans are still morning from yesterday's Chargers lost, other football fans are on the edge of their seat with excitement for the new season.

Aside from a fresh new season, NFL is catching headlines for it's recent concussion settlement. According to Business Insurance, the football league is forking out $765 million to over 18,000 retired players. This settlement is a great example of how workers compensation can heavily cost your business, even after an employee is retired.

As an employer, you have a legal right to provide a safe working environment for your employees. The NFL has the same legal right. Each season football players play in dangerous environments. Despite how many precautions the NFL makes to create a safer atmosphere, players still get injured, and often. To help minimize injuries, the NFL does many studies to educate themselves how to make the game safer and create new rules. They also recruite the finest doctors and specialists around to help assist the players when injuries do occur.

If your working environment risks any danger for your employees, you need to know what extra precautions you can make.
  • Is there any options to you can provide to secure your environment?
  • Are there specialists and extra amenities your employees could use?
  • Do you have commercial insurance to protect your business?
Owning a business highly focused on labor could create many injuries later in life. Providing them with quality health insurance and benefits such as chiropractic, or massage therapies can help prevent injuries. Desk jobs are another form of employment that creates long-term injuries for employees that can come back to your business. Shortening work hours and creating a more efficient schedule can help reduce back pain and carpal tunnel syndromes.
