Be Safe Up on That Ladder, Tracy!

When autumn comes in California, it means leaves will drop and clog gutters, and old branches and hedges will need trimming. Whatever your crew may be doing, it likely involves using a ladder. They need the right information on how to safely use and work while up on the ladder. M3 Monagan Miller McCreary Insurance wants you and your employees to be safe up there – so keep these helpful tips in mind when you set up for fall clean up or any other job that requires a ladder:

Before You Climb – Be Prepared and Protected

  • Make sure your crew is protected by your policy
    Make sure your employees are just that, and not sub-contractors with no proof of insurance. M3 Insurance can make sure your employee coverage is up-to-date before you start the job.
  • Training Saves Lives, California
    Smart workers are safe workers – that’s why M3 Insurance encourages you to train your employees on the proper ladder type for the ground surface, when to nail or tack down a ladder, how to tie it off when conditions are slippery, and how to safely angle ladders to optimize their safety. You can learn more and get employee training materials on this safety topic when you contact M3 Monagan Miller McCreary Insurance.
  • Know the Causes of a Fall
    Ladder related accidents occur for a variety of reasons. The most common are: ladder slipped, carrying material, slipped on rung, struck by material, handling ladder, ladder broke, standing on top, reaching too far and electric shock.

To get training from professionals on how to avoid these accidents in Tracy, you can contact M3 Insurance at 800-830-6656 or clientservices@m3insurance.com and ask for loss prevention training tools.

  • Ladder Safety, Common Sense for Tracy
    California supervisors can use a few basic safety rules as reminders when working with ladders. Be sure they choose the right ladder height for the task, inspect the ladder rungs for defects or moisture, follow the manufacturer’s instructions on extension ladders and maintain 3 foot overlap where sections are joined. Also, be sure the base is out of general job site traffic and keep materials and debris clear. Be sure to place ladders strategically around the job site, if necessary, to avoid having to move ladders long distances.

Testimonials

Thank you for the excellent service you have provided over the years, having both homes, three cars, umbrella and other insurance with you as well. It's all been fantastically handled. We made the move over because we saved a lot of money, but beyond saving money the service has been excellent and you and your entire team deserved to be thanked and credited for that. Thanks again, and it's been a wonderful experience and I'm looking forward to a long and prospect relationship.

Sean and his team provided great service. I called Sean as a friend and asked him to look at my current policies to see if he could save me some money or possibly better protection and he came back with 1 ½ hr later which is amazing in today's day and time. He gave me much better protection and saved me at least 45-50% off my current home and auto policies. He organized and put it all together plus an umbrella policy. I just want to thank Sean and his team once again for helping out just great service. In today's day and age service means a lot especially when we can save some money. Thank you again.

David Liebowitz
Sean I just wanted to take a moment and tell you how happy Kim and I are with you and your team. Having been with State Farm for over 20 years, I just assumed they were taking care of us. Well needless to say – they were just taking our money. Your package saved us hundreds of dollars per year, and I could not be happier with the service. Thanks So Much.

Paul Bradley
My claim experience with your office and Travelers was great. Matt, the adjuster, was delightful. He made me feel relaxed and comfortable. I enjoyed working with him as he was extremely cooperative.

Paulette Ranuio
Your service is absolutely marvelous and just wonderful. When we had a billing problem, your team was on top of it. I was never nervous about it because I knew that it was being taken care of. I really want to thank you and your staff for being there. Your customer service is perfect.

Helena Lowe
I remember when my insurance premium was sky high. At M3, I saved $348 on my auto insurance and I upgraded my home insurance without paying more. It's incredible, I love it!

Joe Rowen
The service is first rate!

Bridget Riddle
I can't say enough good things about M3 Insurance. I couldn't ask for more when I compare my former agent with M3's there is no comparison. As far as claims goes, everything went right. I am a busy business owner and I know I can trust M3 to get the job done on time with a competitive price.

Bob Mills
Sean has always been there for us as our homes, investment properties, and business changes. He and his team do such a great job at keeping up with our busy lives and making sure we have the right protection at the right price.

Stephanie Prioste
There aren't many people in the insurance business that have the knowledge and understanding that Sean possesses. He has the ability to take an insurance policy, make it simple to understand, and take of details that others have left out. When it comes to insurance, Sean is the best.

Rob Riccio
Sean has been a valuable resource for over 10 years. When I remodeled my house, he helped to ensure that our improvements would be protected during and after construction Sean always makes a point to review my needs periodically which none of my other agents ever bothered to do.

Joe Grillo
If you, anyone you know, or any new clients are interested in speaking with a really awesome insurance agent, you should send them to mine. She rocks. I've been with her for 10 years now. Her name is Kelly Johnson at M3 Insurance.
