Helping commercial insureds through a hurricane
The 2022 Atlantic hurricane season officially began June 1, and with most predictions pointing toward an above-average amount of activity this year, it’s imperative that insurers check with their commercial clients to ensure they’re properly prepared.
“Even if you have a tried-and-true plan in place, now is the time to look at it with a fresh mindset,” Jan Young, vice president, loss control leader, risk solutions, QBE North America, said in a press release. “Businesses have undergone significant challenges and changes in the last several years that may not be adequately addressed in their disaster response plans, and the risks from the pandemic are still present. We want to help empower business owners to effectively protect their property and people from disaster, and ensure that if an incident does occur, they can recover quickly.”
Hurricane season is the perfect time to review insurance policies and make necessary updates for your commercial clients who live in areas threatened by tropical storms.
“No matter how prepared you are, accidents and losses can happen in an instant,” Monique McQueen, assistant vice president – CAT claims, QBE North America, said in a release. “Businesses should check in with their broker or insurer regularly to discuss any changes to their operations and property, including any employee workplace changes and new or updated equipment.”
