MORRISTOWN, N.J., September 14, 2016

ProSight Specialty Insurance today announced the launch of a new pest control program to be distributed by its valued partner, Program Brokerage Corporation (PBC), a leading wholesale insurance brokerage firm and the official endorsed broker of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). The specialized insurance solution expands ProSight’s footprint within the building and building services industry, and will include general liability, property, inland marine and crime coverages. Endorsements protecting against client loss of income, professional liability and chemical exposure will also be offered.

“There are a number of inherent risks in the work performed by pest control operators—from the complexities of inspecting new properties, to the hazards of working with chemicals on the job,” said Jake Morin, program executive in ProSight’s Building and Building Services niche. “ProSight delivers targeted solutions to address these unique risks. We look forward to partnering with PBC’s Weisburger Division to provide specialized and differentiated insurance solutions to help minimize exposures for the Pest Control industry.”

ProSight’s pest control customers will have access to leading-edge options including additional coverages and exclusive products, services and special offerings:

– Professional liability coverage—E&O coverage to help safeguard against a situation where employees make a mistake and overlook an infestation or issue during inspection.
– Electronic Data Liability—Covers loss of electronic data whether or not there is tangible property damage, including unintentional damage to underground cabling or accidental water damage to electronics.
