July 1, 2019, HOUSTON, TX – Trident Marine Managers (TMM), a leading specialty marine and offshore energy company and a part of Ryan Specialty Group (RSG), is pleased to announce a strategic initiative with Signal Mutual, the country’s largest provider of Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act benefits, in collaboration with Charles Taylor, its manager. TMM will now offer Signal Mutual’s SafeShore Longshore workers’ compensation program to waterfront employers based in Texas and Louisiana, adding to their list of coverage solutions.

To have the backing of Signal in this space is outstanding, and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship for both parties.”

“The collaboration with TMM will provide access to SafeShore for prospective employers in Texas and Louisiana that meet Signal Mutual’s eligibility standards while driving growth to benefit our membership,” stated Richard W. Wood, President, and CEO of Charles Taylor Management Services, Americas. “SafeShore provides full statutory Longshore workers’ compensation coverage backed by the significant financial strength of Signal Mutual with support from the most experienced Longshore adjusters in the industry.”
