To do this, we will be making a few changes that will help us check in with our clients more consistently, while keeping you and our team members safe. Here are some of the things we are doing:
- We have ensured that there will be no disruption in our service to you. All of our employees are fully equipped to work remotely. Our IT infrastructure is backed up and secured.
- We'll be prohibiting any visitors from entering our offices until further notice. This measure protects any employees that will be onsite.
- All of our phone lines will work as you are used to. We ask you to please leave a message to ensure all calls are returned.
Thank you for your understanding as we take these precautionary steps. If you have any concerns, please reach out to your SCS Account Executive. Additionally, keep checking this page as we will continue to update it.

Updates & Resources
Customer personal injury claims can be costly and very damaging to a retail establishment’s reputation. They can be much more frequent than employee claims in some types of stores, especially warehouses that allow customer access.
Working outdoors in the winter can expose you to dangerously low temperatures. This cold weather can heighten your risk of experiencing a variety of complications—such as hypothermia. For employees that spend their time outdoors during low temperatures, this poses a safety risk- one that can result in serious injuries and costly claims.
In all industries, but especially in transportation and warehousing, safety is a critical component of success, particularly when it comes to equipment use. Ramp safety risks are something employers should be concerned about. If a ramp is not set up properly, it can lead to serious injuries and loss of product. There are several risks that an employer should be aware of when employees are working with ramps and things to keep in mind when designing new ramp systems or replacing old ramps.
Employees acting complacent and ignoring hazards on the job can increase the likelihood of serious safety incidents happening in your workplace—including nearmisses, injuries and even fatalities. After all, even if you have taken steps to ensure healthy and safe working conditions within your organization, safety incidents can still occur if your employees engage in careless acts or unsafe behaviors.
Winter weather can be unpredictable, and cold temperatures, high winds, ice and snow can cause serious damage to your home. To avoid costly weather-related repairs, it’s important to prep your home and property for winter.
Civil unrest can be defined as an act of protest in a public space that escalates into a disturbance or interruption to peace and order. Civil unrest events can involve large amounts of people, and in some cases, include violence leading to bodily injury or property damage. It is important to recognize that not all gatherings of people lead to civil unrest events.
Mega claims have become more common in the past decade. In fact, according to a recent study conducted by the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), these claims have reached a 12-year high—increasing in both frequency and severity.
De-icing Outdoor Walking Surfaces in Winter Keeping outdoor walking surfaces—such as parking lots and sidewalks—clear of ice in the winter is a crucial practice at many workplaces.
The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has been citing establishments for violations related to COVID-19. These citations have resulted in more than $1 million in penalties since the pandemic began. OSHA announces new enforcement actions weekly.
Standard EPLI policies only provide coverage for lawsuits brought about by employees or prospective employees, and most commercial general liability (CGL) policies specifically exclude coverage for harassment and discrimination. Third-party EPLI fills this gap between EPLI and CGL, and offers protection against allegations of wrongful acts made by customers, clients, vendors and suppliers.
