Government Risks Exhibits at Louisiana PRIMA

Recently, our OneBeacon Government Risks team attended, sponsored and exhibited at the PRIMA conference in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Joe Garcia, Risk Management Specialist, also presented one of the sessions during the conference “Drone Fever—How to Treat It.” Drones have increasingly become a hot topic. During Joe’s session, he discussed the types of drones, how they’re used and how to implement the usage of drones into communities.  It was a great opportunity for the team to network with their agents and clients.

Americans with Disabilities Act: Public Entities Must Comply

More than 55 million people in America have physical or mental disabilities that substantially limit a major life activity. In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law to help protect this population and ensure they receive the same rights as everyone else.

This law was especially important for the public sector because it provided guidelines to ensure no program, service or activity discriminates against or excludes anyone based on disability.
