Preventing Losses

Grinnell Mutual believes in protecting people and their businesses.

The safety and well-being of our customers (and their families and employees) has been the cornerstone of everything we do for over a century. A big part of that is ongoing education. Our commercial safety training and loss control programs help give business owners peace of mind today for what tomorrow has in store.

Safety programs and training

Grinnell Mutual’s loss control bulletins and safety program booklets (both listed below) are a great resource as you develop or update your company's employee safety and education training. And our safety videos offer yet another way to deliver information to your employees.

Materials are also available to your staff for onsite safety talks (listed below) and safety training from Grinnell Mutual’s loss control specialists.

In addition, we partner with IntelliCorp® to offer risk-mitigating products for the hiring and screening of new employees. Plus, House of Worship customers have access to background screening for their existing employees and volunteers. Contact your agent for a promotional code to access IntelliCorp's secure website.
