All Audit Benefits

Physical Audits

Our physical audits include an in-person appointment that is scheduled and confirmed in advance and held with the audit contact, preferably at the insured’s premises. Having the appointment at the insured’s premises allows the auditor to tour the facility, see work areas, and correctly classify the operations. Physical audits require the review of original source records and includes a discussion with a principal or other audit contact regarding business operations and duties of employees. Upon completion, physical audits are reviewed and approved by our Quality Assurance Team before submitting to our carrier partners.
