EXTON, Pa., March 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- To keep safety and risk control a top priority in the Environmental industry, XL Group's Environmental insurance business unveiled Risk Resource, an online video series offering safety tips and guidance. The series is part of XL Group's Online Risk Control resources for environmental industry clients and their employees.
"The US Bureau of Labor Statistics just reported preliminary data that indicate 4,405 workers were killed in 2013 with roadway accidents accounting for nearly one out of every four fatalities," according to Matt O'Malley, President of XL Group's North America Environmental business. "Even though this represents a slight decrease from 2012, there are still issues like workplace fires and explosions that are trending in the wrong direction. With tools like Risk Resource, we can help our clients drive safety messages throughout their workforces to help move these accident trends in the right direction."
"XL Group has a proven history of successful collaboration with customers needing assistance with loss prevention programs" said Gregg Shields, Environmental - Vice President Risk Consulting at XL Group. "Our goal with Risk Resource is to provide new, high-impact information and innovative ideas to the facility, project and fleet managers responsible for driving environmental, health and safety performance for their companies. In addition to our existing loss control services, Risk Resource provides a hands-on tool for our clients allowing them to share safety information with their staff as well as their industry peers."
Risk Resource is a state-of-the-art internet based video delivery system that offers risk management & safety information designed to help XL Group's Environmental property and casualty customers boost their overall risk management efforts. Topics currently in the video library include back injury prevention, effective safety training, introducing change, driver safety tips, and other relevant safety & risk management topics.
"XL Group has proven to be a strong, long-term business partner by helping our customers maximize safety and profitability," added Mr. O'Malley. "The environmental service, environmental facility, and transportation firms we team with appreciate simple reminders on key safety topics that help preserve their reputations, profits, and employee safety. Risk Resource will allow us to proactively accomplish this with all our customers on a biweekly basis."
