How To Choose Business Insurance?

by Edwin Rosenthal

Thinking of insurance is a good idea for dealing with the business risks. But to get a right one, lot of work should be done. Some of the tips for choosing the business insurance are

  • Examine the risks: The insurance companies will evaluate all the risks while issuing policies. The underwriter will determine the premiums according to the risks. They will also confirm whether all the coverages or the portion will be issued to you. The premium and the deductibles will be given in the policy. The premium is the cost you pay for the insurance coverage. Various factors like business location,building types, protection services, amount of purchase of insurance etc., will influence the premium cost. Deductibles are the amounts which you should pay, while making the claim. The premium will be low, if you pay high deductibles. So, evaluate the risks before shopping for the insurance.
  • Shop around: Select the insurance carefully by shopping around. Select the broker in such a way that he will decide the best policy which you need and the coverage. So, choose the service according to the necessity.
  • Business owner’s policy: As you want to start the business, it is better to purchase the business owner’s policy(BOP) instead of purchasing different policies from different insurers. Buying a separate insurance from each and every insurer, will cost you more. So, go for BOP. In general, BOP includes different insurances like property, general liability, vehicles, business interruptions etc. Before selecting it, make sure that you understand the coverage perfectly. However, unique risks are not covered in this insurance.
  • Agent or broker: Most of the states are providing the information regarding the licensed agents. So, go through the directory for choosing the agents. Always choose a licensed agent. If you go for a broker, choose the commercial insurance broker, who will help you in meeting the needs. He will help you in finding the best coverage according to the risk. But, be careful in finding the best reputable broker.
  • Upgrade the insurance coverage on an annual basis: As soon as you upgrade the equipments or the operations, make sure that you discuss the changes with the broker and extend the coverage according to the need.

by Dov Waxman

Now-a-days, usage of drugs has increased. In order to detect and prevent the drug usage, many different types of methods are found out by many physicians and researchers. As there are many different types of methods, one has to select the best method for detecting the drug usage.

Before developing the drug testing methods, large amount of research work has been done. The researches did a large amount of research work in making the saliva drug test much accurate. Apart from advantages there are also the disadvantages which make the test unreliable for some cases.

Unlike other tests, the sample can be easily collected and adulteration of the sample cannot be done. Unlike the urine testing, this test does not need any privacy, so the false sample cannot be given.

The sample of saliva is collected using the scrub. The scrub is same as the toothbrush but in this scrub instead of bristles a swab is placed which is used for collecting the saliva. The swab is placed between the gums and the lower cheek for about two minutes. Another advantage of this saliva drug testing is, some of the home testing drug kits can detect the drug presence at that instant itself without the need of lab.

For the long term drug usage patterns saliva drug testing cannot give the accurate results. One can check the drug presence up to 20 hours. Saliva drug testing is used for detecting the presence of the drug which has been consumed within 24 hours. It cannot detect the previous history of drug abuse. Whereas, the other types of tests can be used to detect even after 90 days of usage.

At a time by using the saliva drug testing, there is a chance of detecting 5 to 6 drugs. By using this saliva drug testing, one can detect the presence of 8 different drugs. Until and unless the previous drug history is not needed one can use this method.

This test is mostly helpful for avoiding the road fatalities. This test can detect the presence of drug at that instant, so that the driver is not allowed to drive as the influence of the drug may cause accidents.

These are the results of the various researches done. Still many researches are being carried out for making it much more accurate than the previous.
