As the pandemic surges forward, businesses are struggling to stay open and make a profit. Numerous issues plague business owners who are doing everything in their power to run a successful enterprise while keeping employees cared for and paid. No matter how many safety precautions a company employs, accidents are bound to happen, and employees will need proper assistance.
Although businesses have taken required and necessary precautions to ensure workplace safety, all it takes is one slip-up to bring a company to a complete standstill. After an employee is injured, they will need time to rest and recover, which means productivity may decrease. In worst-case scenarios, you may need to hire an interim employee to help with day-to-day productivity or pay non-injured employees overtime to cover extra shifts.
