Ironshore Environmental Contractors’ Environmental Legal Liability policy can now be broadened to include Professional Liability for certain contractor classes. Ironshore’s CELL coverage responds to third-party bodily injury, property damage and remediation of environmental damages resulting from pollution incidents caused by the contractor’s work at a job site.  A pollution incident is not required to trigger a professional incident. In addition to the new Professional Liability enhancement, CELL also includes coverage for pollution liability associated with transportation, non-owned sites and time-element pollution incidents at an insured’s owned sites, as well as costs associated with image restoration, disinfection events and pre-claim expenses.

Zurich North America is expanding its professional apprenticeship program from its Chicagoland headquarters to its downtown New York City office this fall, with the Borough of Manhattan Community College as the education provider. Zurich’s earn-while-you-learn apprenticeship program, launched at its Schaumburg headquarters in 2016, is designed to attract diverse talent to the insurance industry while providing a debt-free path to a professional career. Zurich apprentices include high school graduates or those with an equivalent certification, veterans of the armed forces, people wanting to move from a job to a career, those returning to the workforce after a hiatus for family reasons, and others attracted by the prospect of a guaranteed job and promotion upon successful completion of the two-year program.
