One of the biggest drivers of higher premiums is claims. Make sure you hire employees without a criminal background to reduce your potential risks. Remember that claims can be made by clients, customers, employees, or others. It is important to do everything you can to operate a “safety first” business and hire the best possible people.
Hire drivers with clean driving records and institute a random drug testing policy. If your business requires motor vehicles, it is important to hire, train, and monitor your employees for compliance and institute a preventative maintenance program for your vehicles to ensure that they are adequately maintained. If your employees use their cars for business purposes, you will need to ensure that they’re correctly insured and well maintained before they can use their vehicles for business.
There are two basic types of reinsurance pools. In the first, an individual member company underwrites the risks and issues the policy to the policyholder. The member then automatically reinsures the risk with the pool in accordance with the pooling agreement.
In the second type, the pool functions as a general reinsurer, underwriting reinsurance policies for primary companies regardless of whether they are members of the pool.
Examples of reinsurance pools include the Registered Mail Insurance Association, which covers currency, securities and other valuables transported by registered and first-class mail, and shippers of property transported by armored cars; and the Excess Bond Reinsurance Association, which offers fidelity coverage (protection against employee fraud) to commercial banks.
