Loss Control and Workplace Safety for the Cannabis Industry
Aspen has a go-to team of highly talented loss control and workplace safety professionals and it's why America’s premier insurance carriers, captives and brokers choose us. With thirty-plus states allowing medicinal and/or recreational marijuana, focused efforts are needed to protect workers and companies.
Working with cultivators, harvesting operations, manufacturers, laboratories, transport operators, dispensaries, and retail storefronts, we provide safety and loss control services for carriers, brokers (and their clients), and direct to companies to improve their cannabis risk and safety programs.
We provide loss control surveys and services for our carriers and brokers; and offer an annual subscription service direct to companies (see below). Individual services are also available.
Annual Plan: For about the cost of a cup of coffee and bagel every two weeks/per employee, the annual service program combines onsite inspections, a review of written safety plans, and annual training. That's right, for about $3.00 a week/per employee*, a written safety program, site safety inspections, and training is included. (*cost based 20 employee minimum)
For example the annual plan includes:
Written Injury and Illness Prevention Plan (CA) and Codes of Safe Practices (new plan or annual update)
Written Cannabis Loss Control and Safety Plan (new plan or annual update)
Online "Ask a Safety Coach" (valued at $1,200 year)
