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”.
The 11th annual Business Insurance directory of property loss control consultants and engineers lists companies that provide loss control services on an unbundled basis to organizations directly utilizing the service; consultants that provide these services only in conjunction with other services, such as brokering insurance, are not listed.

Next, the total number of property loss control consulting and engineering clients appears, followed by the year loss control services began and parent company (if any).

If a company specializes in consulting a particular type of business or industry, it is noted under the specialty heading. Listed next is the geographic region served and cities and states of branch offices providing property loss control services. Names and titles of principal officers follow.
