Slip-resistant footwear to stop trips and falls
The leading cause of injuries and the source of our most expensive claims in our dealerships is Slips, Trips and Falls. And most of these are easily preventable! One of the best precautions you can take is requiring slip-resistant footwear, particularly in the parts department, service area, and service lane.
To help, we are offering a 30% discount for your employees on a variety of Skechers footwear! Just follow the link to our online Skechers shop where we have all different types of shoes. Please encourage your team to select styles listed as “slip resistant” in the description. VADA GSIA does NOT receive any proceeds from Skechers so we can pass along the biggest possible discount to your team.
If you have any questions, contact Michael Allen, VADA GSIA General Manager, at 804.545.3012 or firstname.lastname@example.org
News & Notes
Dealerships must post a current Panel of Physicians and provide an updated Panel of Physicians to injured employees with at least three physicians. Injured employees should be instructed that if the initial physician refers them to a specialist, they must return to the dealership for a Panel of Physicians from which to choose their specialist.
If you do not provide a current Panel of Physicians the employee can choose any physician to treat them and we lose any ability to assist in the management of care.
Use the menu option above to create an updated Panel of Physicians at any time!
