Aon offers driver injury protection for gig-economy workersReprints
Aon P.L.C. is collaborating with One Beacon Insurance Group to develop and offer driver injury protection for Uber drivers, according to a statement issued by Aon Thursday.
The driver injury protection is an occupational accident insurance program that safeguards drivers’ “earnings against unforeseen covered accidents,” Aon said in the statement. The product was designed around a usage-based pricing model “to better align with the flexible/variable schedules and related exposures of on-demand economy workers,” according to the statement.
“On-demand workers, like the thousands of rideshare drivers across the United States are a growing, vital part of our economy and have very unique coverage needs. Aon is pleased to collaborate with our clients and leading insurers to break new ground with innovative and affordable coverage models that best serve these workers,” Randy Nornes, Chicago-based executive vice president of Aon Risk Solutions, said in the statement.
