In order to grow profitably in today’s competitive environment, you need much more than the right product or service. You must also operate efficiently, and that means operating safely. Injuries to your employees or to the public, including vehicle accidents, product-related damages, fires and other losses can result in immediate expenses potentially affecting your bottom line. But they also involve hidden costs in the form of lost productivity, reputational risk and missed market opportunities.
Our risk control consultants are dedicated to serving the telecommunications, information technology, medical technology and electronics manufacturing industries. Our broad range of skills include worker safety, fleet accident prevention, product liability controls, network security, fire prevention, ergonomics and a host of other loss evaluation topics.

OneBeacon first covered the topic of 3D printing in a previous whitepaper published in February 2014. Since that time, technological advancements now allow us to manufacture with an increasing number of materials using a variety of different technologies. Furthermore, 3D printers continue to drop in price, operate more quickly and produce more complicated and larger structures. However, the core technology remains unchanged—additive manufacturing or depositing materials in layers to form a finished product. In this paper, we explore the emerging ability to 3D print using biological materials and thereby build biological components and subsystems.
