Exploring Occupational Accident Insurance & How This Coverage Helps 1099 Independent Contract Drivers
June 20, 2024

In this episode of the podcast, we are dedicating some time to learn about Occupational Accident Insurance and how this coverage provides another important safety net for professional drivers. For our discussion, we will be welcoming Andrew Deutsch, Senior Product & Strategy Director at Intact Insurance Accident & Health. “Occ-Acc,” as it is commonly referred to in the industry, is a standard coverage for most fleets. However, Occ-Acc can sometimes become an overlooked area of coverage for independent contractors and owner-operators. Through this episode, we’ll look at various aspects of Occ-Acc and we will discuss how it differs from other policies, including short-term and long-term disability and workers compensation.

SCF Director of Philanthropy Shannon Currier is your host for the SCF Highway To Hope Podcast, and Shannon’s conversation with Andrew is a must-listen for independent contractors, owner-operators and any trucking entrepreneurs who currently do not have occupational accident insurance as part of your coverage. As you will hear, Andrew has many great insights on the subject. In his current position with Intact Insurance Accident & Health, Andrew focuses on product development, compliance, contracts, and privacy issues involving occupational accident and contingent liability for transportation and sharing economy businesses, as well as non-trucking liability and auto liability.
