West Chester, Pa.— June 8, 2017— Venture Programs (www.ventureprograms.com), a national insurance program administrator, today announced a new partnership with Safety Tag, an innovative online tool designed to promote safety and compliance. With this new partnership, Venture policyholders can now enjoy technology at their fingertips that provides access to users’ health information, emergency contact information, background checks and more.
“This partnership creates tremendous value for our policyholders,” said Philip J. Harvey, Venture president and founder. “With this tool, policyholders can add another layer to their safety and compliance programs with an easy-to-use app that allows them to access health information, emergency action plans and emergency contacts. In the midst of a crisis, this tool can be a life saver.”
Venture provides specialty insurance programs for a variety of industries, including golf and country clubs, resorts, hotels, hunting and fishing lodges, and city and social clubs, as well as commercial marine and hard-to-place property risks. With the Safety Tag partnership, these policyholders will have access to Safety Tag’s subscription at a discount. The subscription will pay off in dividends as policyholders realize improved incident logging, faster accident response time and treatment when they are armed with the proper health information. They will also experience streamlined communication among policyholders, and employees, as well as healthcare workers and insurance claim handlers.
The Safety Tag program is an online platform that – for users who comply – provides instant access to their health information, emergency action plans, and emergency contacts. On the compliance side, the tool provides an easy-to-use system for ensuring background checks are current and appropriate certifications and waivers are completed and submitted to the company. The app provides instant access to a user’s safety profile, as well as incident logging, safety tips, and instant messaging for convenience. The program has proven successful within athletic programs, schools, public sector services, and in private corporations.
“As a leading insurer to hospitality and golf industries, Venture is constantly looking for innovative partners to help enhance our offerings to our clients and ultimately help them to reduce their risk exposure,” said Janet Wright, Venture risk manager. “The Safety Tag app will work as an extension of our policyholders’ safety and compliance programs, as well as serve as an extension of their human resources teams.”
