Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company is urging those who travel with jewelry for a living to review safety measures before going on the road, which includes taking an online course that Neenah, Wisc.-based insurance company offers.
“At Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company, we have been seeing an increase in the number of reported off-premises travel losses involving jewelry,” said David Sexton, CPCU, vice president of Loss Prevention. “Before you travel with jewelry again, carefully review your safety practices to be sure you are not the next victim.”
Jewelers Mutual offers an acclaimed and free online training course: “Danger on the Road” at www.JMUniversity.com. The course offers well-researched safety advice based on careful analysis of actual acts of crime to help traveling salespersons avoid becoming a victim while transporting jewelry.
“Make no mistake; thieves are watching you. It they suspect you are carrying a jewelry line, there is little they will stop at including forcing you into accidents, boxing your car in and smashing out windows, beating you, and other dangerous—even life-threatening – experiences,” JM said in a statement.
The course takes 35 to 40 minutes to complete. “ ‘Danger on the Road’ could save the lives of you or your associates and spare you from becoming the next victim,” JM said. “Take it before you take your next road trip.”
