Our Trusted Partners
Insurance is still the most widely utilized instrument of risk transfer and enables many individuals and organizations to take risks that would not be possible otherwise. For over 60 years, our company has specialized in insurance. Our risk management process does not begin with insurance quotation but with a consultative information gathering interview. This is an important distinction. Imagine walking into a physician’s office and receiving a medical diagnosis without consulting with a physician. The process of risk identification must precede the implementation of insurance.
Following a consultative process of gathering information and learning about the uniqueness of each client, we are then able to design an insurance program based on current and relevant data. We have partnered with leading carriers in various insurance disciplines which evidence financial strength and product excellence. We look forward to building the insurance component of your risk management plan.

Work related injuries represent a significant loss of productivity for the United States each year. Some statistics t from a UC Davis researcher cite the total direct cost of occupational injuries at $250 billion dollars; yes that is billion dollars. The costs represent a substantial percentage of our annual GDP. Further, the total indirect costs associated wit h the same injuries were two-thirds of total cost, whereas direct costs were only one-third. It is no surprise than work related injuries can cause great loss to employers in the form of lost productivity, production delays, low morale, higher workers compensation premiums and so on. The best injury is the one that is prevented.

We use the Acucomp system with a proven track record of lowering experience ratings an average of 28.5 points over period of the modifier.

As a business owner I promote the strengths of my organization. Our strengths are where we are at our best so it is only natural to highlight these areas. I also know that my organization is only as strong as our weakest point; this is true in many if not most areas of life. To ignore my weak points is to put the entire organization at risk. The subject of business continuity is often a concern for organizations but there is a lack of practical information. How do you put a value on the progress and momentum that a business has in achieving it’s strategic objectives? A well designed insurance program can indemnify from many types of loss, but we believe that getting momentum back takes a toll on an organization that can significantly affect short and long term opportunities. Our goal in our business continuity service is to perform diagnostic tests on the organizations of our clients to find the areas that may need further development.
Some areas that we would evaluate are already part of our risk management audit. Some areas that we would evaluate specifically include:
Buy and Sell Agreements
Information Technology and Security
Supply Chain Disruption
