The rising cost and availability of comprehensive insurance coverage are among the top concerns for professionals in the snow and ice management industry. Often, contractors' policies do not contain adequate coverage, and this can have catastrophic consequences – uncovered claims, damage to the contractor's reputation, loss of clients, etc. Many times, large claims can result in increased premiums or loss of coverage all together.
To combat such an adverse outcome, the ASCA worked extensively with Mills Insurance Group to develop the best response. From these early stages, these two organizations worked to develop the ASCA-C educational program and ISO9001/SN9001 certification. To date, these are the only certifications recognized by the insurance industry.
