Workers' Compensation for South Carolina Businesses
Worker’s comp insurance for the Palmetto State
If they’re not swimming, they’re shagging! Before you say “Yeah, baby!” we’ll stop you…shagging is a cross between the jitterbug and swing dancing, and residents of the Palmetto State learn the Carolina Shag practically before they can walk! Recession? What recession? While other states were losing jobs, South Carolina was growing!
In 2010, over 1,200 companies gained market share and brought on new employees in their top industries. There are about 100 aerospace-related companies here, mostly because of Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner assembly line. The 250 automotive plants, suppliers and other related companies make the state the third in the US for automotive industry economic impact. South Carolina’s dedication to biotechnology has earned 600 manufacturing, research and service companies with 13,000 jobs. Charleston is particularly blessed with 35 pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers and 50 research and development companies.
It’s a port state, and in Charleston you’ll find a huge container yard. Where does your recycling go when it’s taken off the curb? South Carolina, where 500 companies and 37,000 people are involved in making something old new again. After a long day of fun at the beach or the low country marshes, South Carolinians set up under the Spanish moss draped trees for a blue crab boil and a nap in the hammock. It’s really just a reason to dig in on a pile of their world-famous hush puppies. And if it’s Independence Day, go big or go home. Fireworks are legal here, and these southerners pride themselves on private shows. Civil War tourists can see where the first shots were fired at Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, the Confederate Museum, antebellum estates, a Union soldier grave at the Secessionville Historic District and many more museums and landmarks. Filled with year-round gardens, great food and lots of community fun, festivals and a barbecue nearly every weekend, it’s no surprise that South Carolina is a great place for small businesses to thrive.
Like almost every state, workers’ comp coverage is mandatory in South Carolina. You’ll be happy to have it when your catering company’s diggers throw out their backs hauling in oysters or your gift shop worker gets jabbed by a kid thinking the Civil War-replica of General Beauregard’s saber wasn’t a real blade. It is.
Cerity workers’ comp insurance is worth the handful of minutes it takes to zip through the online application. Get covered and back to the South Carolina lifestyle with Cerity!
