Delivering a Comprehensive Insurance Program for Wood Treating/Preserving Operations

Wood preservation and timber treatment involves a number of different chemical preservatives and processes apart from structural wood preservation measures designed to extend the life of the wood or timber. At Continental Underwriters, we offer property and casualty insurance for all aspects of the forest products industry including for wood-treating plants.

There are a myriad of hazards that can occur in wood treatment and preservation such as during combustion or where loose wood dust particles or other fine toxic residues are generated or where treated wood comes into direct contact with food and agriculture. This is why it’s so essential that an insurance and risk management program be comprised of safety protocols that include appropriate handling precautions and personal protection measures with wood preservatives.

We’ll work with you to help your clients address the exposures they face with risk management services, including safety program implementation, and a competitive insurance program. Our portfolio of coverages includes: Property, Inland Marine, General Liability, Commercial Auto, Workers Compensation and Employers Liability, Commercial Umbrella, Employment Practices Liability, Equipment Breakdown Coverage, and Crime Coverage.

Continental is here to help you meet the insurance challenges of the forest products industry.
