To assist in creating that environment, KARE offers the following safety services to each and every client:

KARE's Model Safety Program, an invaluable resource, is available at no charge to all KARE insureds. Topics addressed in the Model Program include safety management administration, effective record keeping, dealing with blood borne pathogens, fleet safety, hazard communications, and how to create a light duty policy program. (For a more complete listing of topics, view the entire table of contents.) The Model Safety Program may be obtained on disk or in printed form. Your KARE clients can request a copy using our online Safety Request Form, or by calling Jerry Binkley or Larry Maze at 502-244-7176 or 800-781-7808.
All KARE insureds have access to our extensive Safety Video Training Library. There are currently over 75 titles available for loan. These videos provide practical safety information and instruction on a wide variety of relevant topics and are a useful training tool. To request a video(s), use our convenient online Safety Request Form, or if you prefer, you may fax Leana Phillips or Toni Ann McKenney at 502-489-6445. (NOTE: If you are sending a fax, please be sure to include your name, company name, address, the video number and title, and your KARE policy number.) You may also call 1-800-781-7808 to request videos.
Each year, the KARE safety staff conducts Free Safety Workshops. The goal of these workshops is to provide KARE policyholders an opportunity for ongoing instruction and improvement in the workplace safety arena. To determine the most valuable topics, we survey workshop attendees after each program. The topics of the greatest interest to attendees then become the subject matter for the following year's workshops. Some examples of past workshop topics are:
Written Safety Programs
Hazard Communication Programs
How to Implement an Awareness Campaign to Combat Material Handling Claims
The Top 25 City KOSHA Standards for General and Construction Industries
Personal Protective Equipment
OSHA Program Overview
We also ask attendees to critique the program to let us know of any needed improvements. To date, our safety workshops have been very well received, and the comments submitted by attendees have been quite positive. Below is a sampling of comments from past attendees:
"Very good information!"
In addition to these free workshops, KARE policyholders who are also Kentucky Chamber of Commerce members, receive deep discounts on all Chamber seminars, workshops, conferences, and publications. Please see the Chamber's web site for a current list of safety-related seminars and workshops.
