Managing Risk – Helping construction clients to manage and reduce risk
We know that in the current economic climate clients are keener than ever to get the cover that they need for the best possible premium. We are committed to helping clients to do just this.
Premium levels are, of course, significantly affected by the claims record of the client. The level and type of claims within the construction industry mean this is particularly relevant. According to the HSE, 173 workers were fatally injured in the 12 month period 1/4/11 to 31/3/12 (that’s 0.6 deaths per 100,000 workers). Of these deaths, 49 were construction related (almost one a week) which is 2.3 deaths per 100,000 workers.
At Andrew Bourne & Co we believe that we have a responsibility to help our clients to manage risk and so keep future premiums down. We have access to a unique, online, self-assessment tool. This tool provides our clients with the ability to self-assess their site risk management. Once assessed, we can provide access to consultancy services where required and back up consultancy services where further professional guidance is needed.
