By working together with our policyholders, we can observe, collect and analyze data that helps get to the root cause of injuries and to test prevention solutions in real-life scenarios. And because we are on a mission to ensure all workers go home safe at the end of their workday, we seek ways to share our knowledge and expertise through our Safety Net blog, Safety Experts podcast and through scholarly journals and trade publications.
