CIC partners with HIIG

By Laura Hatton03 October 2013

The construction division of Houston International Insurance Group (HIIG), Houston, Texas, USA, has named Crane Institute Certification (CIC), Villa Rica, Georgia, USA as one of its risk management partners.

CIC offers crane operator certification for five mobile crane categories, digger derrick, articulating boom crane, and certification for service and mechanic truck operators. The partnership allows for reduced premium costs to entities insured by HIIG, a company spokesperson said.

Kevin Cunningham, president of HIIG Construction, said, "In today's market, certification of crane operators, riggers, signalpersons, and others working with and around cranes is expected and has become the industry standard. Certification is proven to be effective in mitigating risk."

Cunningham continued, "We selected CIC as our certification partner for many reasons but, primarily for the thoroughness of its testing, which distinguishes the skill level of the individual and for the value to the customer.”

Debbie Dickinson, CIC executive director, added, "Accredited certification is the most reliable and valid means of qualifying workers and it offers employers an affordable method for documenting its risk management practices. CIC is pleased to be aligned with HIIG in a programme that rewards companies for being proactive with safety.”
