XL Group's North America Construction Team Launches Risk Resource, Part Of An Online Toolbox To Help Clients Push Safety In The Workplace

NEW YORK, May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To keep construction safety a top priority, XL Group's North America Construction business unveiled Risk Resource, an online video series offering safety tips and guidance, part of XL Group's Online Toolbox for construction clients and their employees. 

"The US Bureau of Labor Statistics recently reported that 806 workers were killed in 2012, an increase of 9% over the previous year," according to Gary Kaplan, President of XL Group's North America Construction business, "And another 90,000 people are injured on construction jobsites every year.  While 2013 statistics aren't available yet, we don't need any additional numbers to confirm that construction is a risky profession." 

"If we all drive the safety message through the ranks of our workforce, perhaps we can push those numbers down," added Mr. Kaplan.  "To keep their reputation, profits and employees protected, construction firms appreciate regular, gentle reminders about safety and that's what we intend to do with Risk Resource on a biweekly basis."   

Risk Resource is a state-of-the-art internet based video delivery system that offers risk management & safety information designed to help contractors boost their overall risk management efforts.  To see a video sample, visit the Risk Resource demo.

Topics currently in the video library include back injury prevention, effective safety training, introducing change, stretching and warm-up programs and other relevant safety & risk management topics. 

" Risk Resource was created to help our clients keep safety 'top of mind' and keep then up to date on world class risk management information and strategies," said Scott Merchant, Construction Risk Engineering Manager at XL Group.  "It delivers risk management information directly to our construction clients' desktop so they can take, incorporate into their existing safety programs or share online with their employees."
