Risk Control

Prevention is better than cure

We believe that managing risk and delivering quality service go hand in hand, and we understand just how disruptive each and every claim is to our policyholders’ businesses, especially in competitive markets where lost custom can be hard to win back.

Surveys, risk assessments, training and advice

Our risk surveys and assessments are a distinguishing feature of the service we provide, delivering tangible benefits to policyholders – whether it’s risk improvements, protecting not just the insured items, but the business as a whole, or risk assessments, identifying weak spots in procedures and helping to prevent reputational damage. And, of course, effective loss prevention keeps renewal premiums down.

Whilst traditional underwriting surveys of storage premises are the core activity of our risk control team, we compliment our service with training and advice on a variety of topics, tailored to the individual needs of brokers or policyholders, such as supply chain risk analysis from supplier to customer, supply chain contingency planning, route risk assessments and driver security awareness training including vehicle anti-hijack procedures, warehouse fire and security measures, advice on yard security, loading and/or unloading surveys and much more.

We compliment all of this with training and advice on a variety of topics, tailored to the individual needs of brokers and policyholders.
