Driving on the job is a major component of employees in the building industry and driving on the job can come with inherent risks, and it’s essential for companies to understand their workers’ compensation obligations.
Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that provides benefits to employees who are injured or become ill as a result of their job duties. In most states, employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, and builders and construction industries are no exception.
When it comes to driving on the job, you need to be aware of your workers’ compensation obligations. If an employee is injured in a car accident while driving for work, they may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits can include medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs.
Some states have specific requirements for workers’ compensation coverage for employees who drive as part of their job duties. It’s important that you take steps to ensure the safety of your employees who drive on the job. This can include implementing safe driving policies, providing driver training, and ensuring that vehicles are well-maintained and safe to operate.
