Moving and Storage

The challenges of the moving and storage business are like the business itself—always changing as staff and customer demands change.

At Hanover Risk Solutions, we know that finding and keeping experienced drivers and avoiding losses to maintain financial stability and preserve reputation are the top goals. Those goals fall into place as you build a culture of safety, a goal we can help you meet with our suite of solutions.

 

  • Ergonomic Solutions – Safe Lifting

    Keeping workers safe from lifting injuries is a full-time job in the moving and storage industries, and with good reason: 25 percent of workers’ compensation claims are related to back injuries. Helping employees understand the mechanics of such injuries and helping them avoid them can be key.

  • Distracted Driving

    As a business owner with a fleet, you know that fleet accidents can be the most costly and are likely the most common concern, and driving distracted is widely known to be the cause of most motor vehicle crashes. Giving drivers and their managers the tools they need to avoid distracted driving can help cut down on losses.
