Safety, Insurance and Risk Management- What Recycling / Waste Business Owners Need to Know
Speaker: John Schumacher- Assurance / Marsh Agency

October 6th 2020: 

The insurance marketplace has experienced significant shifts in the past 12 months and has impacted recycling businesses in a large way. This seminar will discuss what professionals can expect in the insurance market and how safety can favorably impact your business and your next insurance renewal.  There are several new factors that are affecting insurance markets for Solid Waste and Recycling professionals.  What items need improvement at your facility?  What are others in the industry changing in their programs to minimize risk?  This is a must attend meeting that can help your operation financially and keep your employees safe, not a sales pitch.

  • Key safety programs for recycling businesses
  • How to manage risk and transfer it effectively
