Apart from providing insurance cover for various circumstances, the company had a “Research Institute for Safety” where studies were conducted on the occupational safety and health of workers in various industries. It has set up guidelines for machine safeguarding to protect workers from accidents. It developed the Workplace Safety Index which lists out the leading causes of most disabling injuries. They also conduct field and lab experiments to study the causes of work-related injuries and disability arising from these injuries.

The growing population of various kinds of vehicles on the road and the driving indiscipline of the drivers cause a majority of the accidents - accidents that can be avoided, if people become more careful and patient while driving. Our streets are also getting more congested and smog is a regular feature. This leads to health problems that land you in the hospital. Our food is contaminated and most of the fertilizers are toxic and harmful.
We live in a dangerous era and everyone’s priority should be to insure themselves, family members, assets and possible liabilities that you may encounter in your life. Insurance is not an expense!
