ARE YOU PROPERLY ASSESSING RISK WHEN THE CALL COMES IN?
Too often in the cleaning industry, we see many companies trying to tackle a project that is completely outside of their “wheelhouse.” The lure of making a profit on a job is always there but what are the exposures?
Even in the Bio Recovery industry, we find contractors that jump at the chance of a job, after all, the industry is usually 100% event driven. By the time an insurance carrier arrives to evaluate the claim, mitigation is finished or almost completed. Many cleaning company owners think it is “just blood” but, when you look at the variables that can arise, one can quickly become overwhelmed.
In 2016, The American Bio Recovery Association (ABRA) embarked on developing a guidance document to help contractors understand the perils they face regarding Bio Recovery mitigation projects. In fact, the Bio Recovery industry is getting more and more dangerous for contractors.
