Designed with Scaffold companies in mind, Allied and ProSight’s all-lines insurance and risk management solution addresses the complexities of this industry’s risks and meets the actual industry needs and concerns of today’s scaffold industry professionals. This unique solution demonstrates our commitment to the scaffold industry, delivering innovation and education to the industry. Allied and ProSight are able to deliver to the industry this highly customized insurance program to scaffold companies in one simple, comprehensive package.
With their one-stop all-lines approach, Allied and ProSight’s Scaffold Program eliminates any claims confusion due to multiple insurance carriers and provides a better customer experience overall. The product offerings include:

For scaffolding professionals—safety is paramount. While education is central to creating a culture of safety, businesses must further minimize risk with the appropriate insurance protection. This new insurance product from Allied and ProSight is an ideal solution for businesses looking to fully safeguard themselves.
Allied and ProSight are not only showing their commitment to the scaffold industry, they are showing their commitment to the scaffold workers. According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), it is estimated the 65 percent of construction workers spend some time working on scaffolding, with the number one hazard being worker falls. This program and its risk management services are aimed at increasing the overall safety of the equipment and reducing the likely hood of worker accidents.
“With over 30 years of experience within the scaffold industry, we have seen it all and truly understand scaffold risk management,” said Marty O’Brien, Allied’s Chairman & CEO. “That very experience, along with ProSight’s resources, allowed us to assemble a program that covers all facets of scaffolding risks. It’s truly the only one like it in the industry. Plus the risk management services will only help strengthen scaffold companies by making them safer, more profitable organizations. This is what we at Allied like to do…contribute to the industry by providing the best options available.”
