Grilling Safety Tips For Your Memorial Day Barbecue

Having a Memorial Day Barbecue? Stay Safe with These Grilling Safety Tips

Here are some grilling safety tips so that you can enjoy your Memorial Day barbecue!

Memorial Day is coming up. Enjoy the long weekend with a festive barbecue. But, before you start grilling, brush up on your grilling safety. Barbecues can be extremely dangerous. In fact, they account for thousands of insurance every year. Stay safe and find out how to avoid any grilling accidents.

  • Don’t grill indoors. Barbecues can release toxic chemical gases into the air. When you grill indoors or in poorly ventilated spaces, you increase your risk of disaster. Avoid carbon monoxide poisoning and always grill outside.
  • Keep the barbecue away from anything flammable. Your home, your patio furniture, your garage, and your vegetation are all flammable materials. Move your barbecue so that it’s at least ten feet away from flammable items.
  • Grease is not your friend. When you grill meat on a barbecue, it drips fat and grease which builds up and can lead to a fire. Don’t put too many items on the grill and clean the grill before and after each use to reduce your risk of starting a grease fire.
  • Stay near the barbecue while it’s in use. Leaving the grill unattended is extremely dangerous. It only takes a few seconds for a fire to break out. And it’s important to keep curious kids and pets away from the barbecue.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher handy. If the flames do get out of hand, a fire extinguish can be a big help. However, at the first sight of flames, call the fire department and safely evacuate the area to prevent any injuries.

Keep your backyard barbecue safe from any grilling disasters. For added peace of mind, protect your home from fire damage with homeowners insurance.

How to Drive Safely to Save on Your Auto Insurance

Find Out How to Drive Safely to Save on Your Auto Insurance Premium

Learn how to drive safely so you can qualify for a good driver discount.

Different policies offer different discounts. Lower risk means that you’ll save more money. When it comes to your auto insurance policies, you’re likely going to save on your policy if you’re a safe driver. Safe driver discounts vary based on your insurance carrier, but they generally are offered if you avoid at-fault accidents and a clean driving record. Check out these ways that you can improve your driving to help you qualify for a good driver discount.

Abide by the Speed Limit.

The speed limit exists for a reason. The speed limit helps to keep you safe on the road. In fact, speeding is a top cause of traffic accidents. The more you speed, the more you risk an accident and a traffic ticket. Slow down and follow the speed limit.

Eliminate Distractions.

Put your phone away and turn down the music. Distracted driving is dangerous driving. Focus on driving and wait to eat, apply makeup, send a text message, or anything else.

Pull Over when Sleepy.

Drowsy driving is extremely dangerous. You’re more likely to drift when you drive sleepy which increases your risk for an accident. Get plenty of sleep and get off the road if you’re feeling sleepy.

Keep a Safe Distance.

Not only is tailgating annoying to other drivers, but it’s dangerous. When you follow too closely behind another car, you significantly increase your risk of an accident. If the car in front of you comes to a sudden stop, you could wind up kissing their bumper. Keep at least two cars’ worth of distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.

Drive Defensively.

Watch for others while on the road. While you can’t control other drivers on the road, you can control how you react to close calls. Be aware of your surroundings and curb any aggressive driving.

Maintain your Vehicle.

A well-maintained vehicle is a safer car. You’re less likely to encounter any mechanical issues while on the road. Go for regular tune ups, check your tires frequently, and keep your car well oiled. If you notice any issues with your car, bring it to a mechanic to have it checked out.

Save on your auto insurance and strive to be a good driver. Contact the insurance professionals at Moser Group Inc. Located in New York, our experienced, knowledgeable staff help you meet all your personal and commercial insurance needs.

How to Safeguard Your Business From Multi-Million-Dollar Lawsuits

How to Safeguard Your Business From Multi-Million-Dollar Lawsuits

Protect your business from costly lawsuits with commercial liability insurance!

Lawsuits have become a part of American culture. They’ve become an everyday occurrence. However, a lawsuit can be detrimental to the survival of your business. From legal fees to medical bills to settlements, lawsuit expenses can add up. That’s where commercial liability insurance comes in. Protect your small business with the liability insurance and check out these common business lawsuits.

Discrimination.

Federal law prohibits employers to discriminate against their employees, or anyone with whom they conduct business. In terms of employee discrimination an employer mustn’t discriminate, harass, retaliate, or wrongfully terminate an employee due to a person’s characteristic such as gender, race, religion, age, disability or any other defining characteristic. Additionally, businesses may not discriminate against anyone that the company conducts business with, from vendors to customers to suppliers. Stress the importance of discrimination avoidance to reduce your risk of a lawsuit.

Wage Violations.

It’s important to pay a fair wage to your employees. Federal law, state law, and local law, all weigh in on how you’re required to pay your employees. Avoid any wage law issues and read up on your local laws so that your employees are paid fairly.

Breach of Contract.

Contracts outline an agreement between parties. Once you sign a contract, they’re legally binding agreements. If you fail to meet the terms of the contract, then you could be at risk for a lawsuit. It’s important to stick to your business agreements. If a problem arises, seek legal advice and avoid a breach of contracts. Keep in mind that your liability insurance generally won’t cover lawsuits pertaining to breach of contracts.
