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”.

ACE adds accidental death, dismemberment to manufacturing coverage


PHILADELPHIA—ACE U.S.A. has expanded its insurance for the manufacturing industry to include accidental death and dismemberment coverage.

The AD&D coverage is part of ACE PaC, a general liability and pollution policy form available to small- and midsize companies, including those involved with the chemical manufacturing, distributing, mixing and blending process, the ACE Group Holdings Inc. division said Monday in a statement.

"We're pleased to offer accident insurance and risk management solutions to address serious work-related injuries that can have a devastating impact on employees and their families,” Joe Vasquez, division president, ACE USA accident and health, said in the statement. “This combined coverage, which addresses general liability exposures as well as pollution liabilities, can now be expanded to provide an additional AD&D benefit for employees in states where it is permitted. Not only do these enhancements help address the exposures faced by the manufacturing industry, they also address the financial security and resources necessary for dealing with an accidental loss.”
