Check out the latest edition of Safety Focus, Markel Specialty's accident prevention newsletter. Learn more about manual material handling, liquor liability, and golf cart safety.

Manual material handling

Almost every manual material handling activity carries some potential for injury, from minor to severe. That’s why at every stage in the process is essential for workers to understand and follow best practices for safe material handling.

Liquor liability

While the vast majority of businesses serve alcohol without incident, the harsh reality is that lawsuits related to liquor liability are filed each day.

Workplace wellness

The most efficient and effective businesses know that supporting the health and wellbeing of employees is critical for success. Employees that are both physically and mentally healthy are more likely to experience success in their personal and professional lives.
