It is an unfortunate fact but unforeseen events do occur which cause:

  • Injury
  • Loss
  • Damages to your property
  • Damage to 3rd party

One way to mitigate these risks is through Insurance which is the transfer of risk.

Another way to mitigate risks is having a robust risk management programme in place.

A simple explanation of what Risk Management is:

  • Identifying hazards
  • Assessing those hazards (how dangerous they are)
  • putting steps to in place to reduce those hazards
  • continuous Monitoring of those hazards, training and acting when there are issues
  • Providing training to staff and continuous support to manage the hazards
  • Documentation

The benefits of a Risk Management Programme include:

  • Protect staff and customers
  • Protect the Company’s brand and reputation
  • Protect the assets of a company
  • Improve efficiency
  • Reduce the risk of claims
  • Reduce Insurance costs
  • Reduce the cost of claims

Insurance companies love to see evidence of a strong Risk Management and will offer discounts on premiums if they see a structured, management supported and documented risk management programme. The courts also love to see documentation in the unfortunate event of a claim.
