IOA: Insurance Office of America
Insurance Office of America has been selected by the National Waste & Recycling Association to offer members a full range of risk and insurance solutions. IOA is one of the nation’s 30 largest agencies and provides customers with an in-house proprietary risk management program at no additional cost.
IOA has a longtime association with NWRA and the environmental industry, and has deep expertise in our industry, with a specific practice devoted to this crucial sector. Through its participation in the Safety Committee and ANSI Standards Committee, IOA understands our members’ requirements and has a unique perspective on best practices.
As a key feature of this agreement, IOA will work to negotiate discounts for NWRA members who have drivers successfully completing the NWRAdriver and front-line supervisor certification programs. IOA’s proprietary RiskScore® gives underwriters the tools they need to understand the benefits of safety training and other risk management programs that define Best-in-Class operators. RiskScore® is like a credit score for your business and it identifies your strengths and weaknesses in 4 key risk areas. With RiskScore®, IOA implements industry best practices to eliminate some of the cause of these exposures at their core, resulting in customized coverage at competitive rates for NWRA members.
“We are able to offer an array of options ranging from traditional policies to captive and self-insured programs,” said Nathan Brainard, Vice President of IOA’s Environmental Division. “IOA is contracted with all of the major carriers offering coverage in this industry, so we are able to provide effective and economical insurance solutions to NWRA members, whether they operate one truck to several thousand trucks.”
