We're in the middle of winter, and seasonal risks are top of mind - particularly that of snow! What comes down soft and white can accumulate and do real damage. Are you up-to-date on the effect of snow loads on structures, and how it relates to insurance? This seminar will give you an understanding of the effects of snow loads on structures, and you'll have the knowledge you need to be able to competently handle and settle insurance claims involving collapse under snow loads.

Build on your knowledge with this session, which will be of interest to:
   - Claims Investigators
   - Loss Adjusters
   - Underwriters
   - Appraisers
   - Loss Control Specialists
   - Brokers/Agents

You'll leave this presention being able to:
   1. Understand the basics of limit states design
   2. Distinguish between the different structural loads and load combinations
   3. Understand the basics of snow load calculation
   4. Understand typical roof and wall framing systems
