Many HVAC workers who are employed by assorted heating and cooling companies suffer on- the-job accidents.
They do not occur too often, it’s not unheard of.
It usually depend on the type of HVAC services they provide. Some HVAC companies offer workman’s comp. It has not become a common spread thing in the HVAC industry, but more and more companies are offering insurance as a job benefit. Like any other service, HVAC installation, maintenance and repair requires physical labor. Workman’s comp is a good insurance to have. With workman’s comp, there might be some additional things needed to protect the HVAC contractor. Their insurance plan might be customized. I would assume that the most likely issues for an HVAC contractor would be straining their backs from heavy lifting. They also handle installations on commercial rooftops, putting them at greater risks. I have a friend who works as an HVAC professional. They just recently offered workman’s comp insurance at his job. He was happy about it! It has been a long time coming for him. He now feels more secure on the job. He knows that if he sustains an injury that keeps him out of work, he won’t also be left without an income. Working in the HVAC industry is a lucrative profession. There’s always work, and these technicians are needed all across the country. Hopefully, the HVAC contractors will receive the compensation and protection they deserve. I think as these companies expand in size and employee a larger workforce, they need to protect themselves from litigation and take care of the employees.
