Jewelers Mutual launches new loss prevention resource on JewelersMutual.com


(NEENAH, Wis.) - In just under two minutes, jewelers can learn how to avoid costly shipping losses by watching a new video created by Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company. Jewelers Mutual produced “Ship Jewelry Safely and Securely” as a teaching tool that can aid jewelry businesses in avoiding shipping losses.

The new video is just one component of a new loss prevention resource on JewelersMutual.com’s Safety and Security page. With this new online resource, Jewelers Mutual will take a wealth of information it has gathered and break down effective loss prevention strategies into weekly tips and information that is easy for jewelry business owners and managers to share with their employees.

“Jewelers Mutual has been a resource for jewelers for 100 years now, helping them to protect their businesses. We decided to launch this new Safety and Security page with a shipping video because, frankly, you would indeed be shocked by the number of insurance claims that result from shipping losses,” said David Sexton, vice president of loss prevention at Jewelers Mutual.

Sexton added, “Losses like these are preventable... so we created this quick reminder which they can share with their staff and colleagues in just two minutes.”

Some of the shipping tips which Jewelers Mutual recommends are using layered boxing techniques and packing materials to avoid shifting and damage during transit. Senders should disguise return addresses, address the package to an individual rather than a jewelry business and request a signature upon delivery. Paying attention to these and other details can deter thieves and help ensure that your package is delivered on time and intact.

Many of the new features of the loss prevention page, including weekly tips and short videos, were inspired by Jewelers Mutual’s Jewelers Advisory Council, a group of jewelry business owners who meet regularly to discuss the needs of jewelers and how Jewelers Mutual can serve the industry in meaningful ways.

Jewelers Mutual has been a longtime leader in loss prevention, working with jewelers to safeguard their businesses. For more information visit JewelersMutual.com.
