From the tank that holds spent fluids to the lift that boosts 4,000-pound vans, liability and property risks abound. Expensive, installed equipment; high-value portable tools; tires and other inventory; corrosives, flammables and other hazardous materials; drawers full of stickers and other valuable papers—the list goes on. And don’t forget the possibility of worker or customer injuries, damage to or theft of their property, and the closure of your business due to damage to your facility, equipment or suppliers. Even employee theft must be considered.
