BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Tower Program Insurance Services is a national program administrator and has developed a national program for the tower construction industry. Program coverage includes customized workers’ compensation, general liability, auto, and installation floaters. The minimum premium is $50,000, All Risks said Saturday in a statement.

Tower Program Insurance Services founders Scott Hermesmeyer and Patrick Shea have joined the national specialty programs unit of All Risks as directors of the national tower construction program. They will remain in their Austin location. Messrs. Shea and Hermesmeyer are responsible for marketing and underwriting this program, according to the statement.

“We could not be happier to have Patrick and Scott joining the All Risks Programs team.
