Metal theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the country. Copper, aluminum, nickel, stainless steel and scrap iron have become the desired target of thieves looking to make a quick buck.
Contractor’s Pollution Liability (CPL), once viewed as expensive and unnecessary, has now become an integral part of every trade and environmental contractor’s insurance program. The industry is seeing requirements for this coverage from a combination of building owners, developers and general contractors for projects of all sizes.
Physical work can be demanding on our bodies. As the employer, what are you doing to help your employees prepare for the day’s work? Collectively, the most severe injuries come from the lower back by way of strain or sprain as a result of lifting. Eliminating lifting exposures is the ultimate solution to limiting back strains; however, it is not always possible. Interactively training your employees to accurately lift material with proper technique is a preventive approach you can implement today in order to limit your organization’s lifting exposure. Although visual diagrams of proper lifting mechanics are important, consider Rancho Mesa’s A.B.L.E. “Lift” Protocol to help physically train your employees to execute proper lifting decision making and establish the correct physical elements it takes to perform a lift.

Julie Romero, AMC
"What I loved about my experience is Jim didn’t just tell me what needed to be done and then hang up, he instead stayed on the phone with me while we found a medical center for the employee. He let me know what forms I needed to fill out, helped me find them and instructed me on who they would need to go to. He took me through the process step by step, even instructed me on the importance of the employers interview, telling me what questions to ask and how detailed they needed to be. I truly felt like I had a partner! He also took the time to tell me what will need to be done in the next few steps and assured me that if I had any questions, he was there for me. I loved the customer service."
Mark Draper, Chief Financial Officer, Apex Mechanical Systems, Inc.
”Your team addressed a number of my 'special cases', handling them with the utmost care and in the process directly taking them off my plate to solve and freeing up my time to focus on other crucial areas of the business, outstanding."
Andrew Moreno, President, Able Heating & Air Conditioning
“We work in an industry where insurance procurement can be a challenge and having a partnership like Rancho Mesa and Kevin Howard really helps. We have seen our experience mod rate drop on a very rapid decline. With our type of work if your XMOD gets over 1.00 you can lose a job so it’s important. We lean on Rancho Mesa quite a bit. Risk management is not what we do. We build things so we love leaning on their expertise."
Jeanne Reinholz, Associate Mechanical Contractors
"AMC has partnered with Rancho Mesa Insurance for over 11 years and it’s through our one on one relationship, their dedication to integrity and service as well as an outstanding risk management approach that AMC has been able to focus and excel in the construction industry. We trust our insurance business to Rancho Mesa!"
