Partnering with you to get your employees safely home to their families every day is the most important service Texas Mutual delivers not just to our policyholders, but to every Texas business. That’s why we launched our Work Safe, Texas website.
The site is a forum for us to share our workplace safety expertise with Texas. Each month, we upgrade worksafetexas.com with fresh content. From downloadable posters to online videos to workplace safety articles, you’ll find resources that address the unique hazards your employees face.
Here are just a few highlights from the March offerings waiting for you at worksafetexas.com.
