Worker health and safety

Take a proactive approach to safety at your workplace by focusing on employee training. Bolster performance and employee well-being by creating an informed workforce. Zurich offers a variety of solutions and consultative programs designed to advance your company’s safety awareness, help address substance abuse issues and work to create a zero injury corporate culture.


Injury and accident prevention programs

Strain injuries and slip, trip and fall injuries are two of the most common risks facing construction workers. Substance abuse can also lead to impairments that affect job safety. Our programs and resources are designed to address these and other construction work hazards.

The Soft Tissue Injury Prevention Program (STIPP), developed in collaboration with the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), promotes awareness of soft tissue injuries, while training participants on how to mitigate or prevent the impact of such injuries. STIPP, a complimentary program available to qualified customers, includes training that can be tailored to your company’s specific requirements.

Slip, trip and fall prevention

Slip, trip and fall prevention.We provide effective tools and training resources to help contractors address their unique needs, while working to achieve the broader standard of the Construction Industry Institute (CII).

Falls represent the greatest potential for severe, disabling or life-threatening injuries in the construction industry. As a contractor, you also face a special challenge: your team is at risk from slip, trip and fall hazards created by other on-site personnel, as well as those created by their own work activities.

Zurich believes that all construction contractors should operate under the 100% fall-protection standard recommended by the Construction Industry Institute. We provide exceptional resources to help you address your unique needs, while seeking to achieve this broader standard.
