Streamlining Workers’ Compensation in the Tradeshow Industry

by Griffen Wilson, Employco


The tradeshow industry is known for its dynamic nature, bustling with activity and innovation. Behind the scenes, however, lies a crucial aspect that only gets attention when trouble arises: Workers’ Compensation. Ensuring the safety and well-being of employees is paramount in any industry, but where setup, breakdown, and event execution happen in rapid succession, managing Workers’ Compensation effectively can be challenging. Having a comprehensive solution that streamlines the process, offering pay-as-you-go coverage without the hassle of annual audits and ensuring peace of mind for businesses across the nation is where Employco can help.

Top Challenges of Workers’ Compensation in the Tradeshow Industry:

  1. Financial Uncertainty: Annual audits required by many insurance providers can lead to unpredictable premium adjustments, making budgeting and financial planning difficult for tradeshow companies.
  2. Coverage Limitations: Finding a workers’ compensation provider that offers coverage across all 50 states can be daunting, especially for companies looking to expand their operations nationally or pick up projects in states that they don’t typically operate in.
  3. Lack of Safety / No Loss Control Program: Workplace injuries on the tradeshow floor can hurt a company’s reputation. Traditional Workers’ Comp. carriers do not preform consistent loss control visits, nor do they implement safety programs to ensure a smooth move-in and move-out. Some companies have been fined by OSHA for safety violations such as unsafe work conditions, no fall protection, ladder safety, etc.
  4. Tedious Administrative Processes: Traditional Workers’ Compensation plans often involve extensive paperwork and administrative burdens, diverting valuable time and resources away from core business operations.
