Keeping the lights – water, gas, web and more – running involves logistical challenges of all kinds, and includes quite a few avenues of risk.

The power and utilities industry sits uniquely between the spaces of municipality management, public works and private ventures — oftentimes working together to provide the populace with everything they need to live, work and prosper.

While there may always be further opportunities to move across the industry, there are also more than a few potentially catastrophic risks involved. Inclement weather and machinery breakdown can interrupt service – and business. Worksite safety, fleet management and incessant government regulations are perennial concerns. Meanwhile, to remain competitive and effective, you’re engaged in constant upkeep. Ensuring your exposures are accounted for and your operation is compliant can present a seemingly insurmountable challenge.
