Ticket Risk Assessment

When dealing with valuable infrastructure, it is essential that we are able to quickly assess the risk of every ticket received. To address this damage prevention and regulatory need of utility providers, USIC has deployed a Ticket Risk Assessment solution that automatically evaluates job risk and projects the probability of a damage occurring with each ticket.

MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT & CEO Show

COVID-19 and its variants continue to ravage families. Every day, we all hear new numbers on infection rates, hospitalizations, and deaths as statistics supporting or refuting policies and recommendations about getting vaccinated, wearing masks, and social distancing.  I am pleading with you to read the article linked below.  This tragedy took place near where I live, but there are stories like this from every community, like your own, telling of the horrible impact of the virus on PEOPLE, FAMILIES, LIVES.  I do not want any of you to be the subject of the next COVID-19 news story.  Full vaccination provides life-saving protection and lessens the severity of symptoms if you contract the virus.  Do not wait for the final wishes of loved ones to be your motivation.  PLEASE GET VACCINATED TODAY AND ENCOURAGE YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND COWORKERS TO DO THE SAME. You are my family, and I will continue to nag you in order to protect you. Please spread the word, not the virus.  

Mike Ryan
President & CEO
