ThinkHR Introduces Risk & Safety Resources to Help Companies Reduce Risk Exposure and Costs

Comprehensive offering provides new risk and safety content, innovative training resources, and highly functional tools, supported by white-glove live advisor service

PLEASANTON, Calif.—February 28, 2017—ThinkHR, the leading provider of integrated HR and compliance knowledge solutions, today announced the launch of ThinkHR Risk & Safety Resources, a comprehensive offering designed to help companies improve loss control through safety training, content, and tools, accompanied by white-glove service from live advisors. For ThinkHR’s insurance partners, Risk & Safety Resources further expands the platform seven of the top ten brokers in the U.S. consider indispensable for their clients.

ThinkHR Risk & Safety Resources, available on ThinkHR’s Workplace Pro platform, is designed to give HR and safety managers easy to find information, tools, and employee training that can ensure compliance, change behavior, build a safety culture, and lower risk modification rates, the key to decreasing property and casualty insurance premiums. In most organizations, employee behavior presents a large liability, tying HR departments to property and casualty brokers like never before.

“We believe that good HR is good risk mitigation,” said ThinkHR founder and CEO, Pete Yozzo. “When a company adopts HR best practices and has well-crafted policies in place, employees are safer and happier, costs go down, and the organization becomes focused on achieving goals, not triaging problems.”

Alethea Leandro-Farr, Safety and Loss Control Manager at ThinkHR partner James G Parker Insurance Associates adds, “I’m responsible for monitoring workers’ comp claims. It’s really obvious to me that when there are a bunch of claims, there’s a labor relations issue or supervisors haven’t been trained correctly—which both point to bad HR practices. HR and safety work together—safety is part of HR.”

ThinkHR is uniquely positioned to provide compliance and risk guidance to employers through its industry-leading team of live HR advisors, who have resolved hundreds of thousands of HR issues in the past five years. The HR advisors are available to help employers when they need it—often in one phone call—and offer a level of up-to-date experience and expertise employers have come to rely on.

ThinkHR’s Risk & Safety Resources includes:

  • Safety training: More than 150 safety training courses with timely focus on topics such as cybersecurity, active shooter preparedness, and OSHA requirements.
  • Access to live advisors: Advice in plain English from certified HR and compliance experts that allows organizations to resolve issues quickly.
  • Safety content: Actionable, concise content to assist in workers’ compensation audits, hazard assessments, and injury management checklists built to ensure compliance with state and federal requirements.
  • Compliance tools:  An innovative 50-State Employee Handbook Builder, Job Description Builder as well as many more intuitive online tools that help organizations create clear policies and expectations.

    The new offering is available immediately.
