PESTWORLD
PREVIEW

Every year, NPMA gathers thousands
of pest management professionals
from across the globe to offer
opportunities for information
sharing, provide access to the latest
products, services and technologies
in the 100,000 square foot exhibit
hall, and generate critical thinking in
world-class educational sessions.

It is essential for pest management companies, even
the smallest mom-and-pop shops, to stay on top of
employment laws. These are ever-changing and can
have significant consequences for employers if not
properly followed.

In 2015, 4,836 workers were killed on the job - that's
an average of more than 93 work-related deaths
a week and more than 13 every day. While
these numbers may seem shocking, it's actually
a vast improvement from decades past.

Defending yourself against litigation costs
your company time and money. Here's how to
limit your business' involvement with the legal
system, including liability issues, contracts,
regulations, OSHA violations and more.

Besides improving the health and welfare of its
employees, pest control companies have many
incentives to make safety a priority, including lower
employee turnover, higher team morale, stronger
customer confidence and lower insurance rates.

THE COST OF A DATA BREACH COULD
PUT YOUR PEST CONTROL OPERATION
OUT OF BUSINESS
Data breaches have become a reality for organizations
large and small, who are now learning the hard way that
if you don't prepare for a cyberattack - or have the right
coverage to back you - it will hit your balance sheet
hard and could very well bankrupt you.
