With more than 55 million K-12 students attending school every day, educational institutions are on the front line of keeping people safe, in the classroom, on the bus, on the athletic fields and in the cafeteria. Add to those statistics the more than 20 million students attending nearly 5,000 colleges and universities and you have risk of colossal proportions.

At Hanover Risk Solutions, we’ve taken that risk down to manageable proportions, so that you can address the issues that are most important, in the simplest and most cost-effective way possible, whether it’s how to keep bus drivers and their passengers safe, or how to keep the cafeteria from going up in smoke.
