A Synergy Moment: How Much Is a Glove Really Worth?

Synergy Coverage Solutions has been in the workers’ compensation industry for nearly 10 years.  In a special series called “Synergy Moments,” we would like to share the situations that capture the true collaborative nature of our business.

In our most recent Synergy Moment, one of our Claims Adjusters noticed a reoccurring injury claim.  Our Adjuster had received several claims from the employer in which employees cut their hands on glass or blades while handling trash.  As our Adjuster was able to note and recall the frequency of these particular injuries from this employer, he notified our Loss Prevention team and brainstormed ways in which this frequent injury could be avoided.  By utilizing special gloves while handling trash, cuts and scrapes would be prevented.  Isn’t the cost of protective gloves worth the spend to reduce employee injuries, as well as claims costs, in the long run?
