Be Prepared in the Event of a Claim

The information that a company is expected to provide following an employer’s liability insurance claim can be quite daunting, particularly if you are not prepared. The following is a list of documents that an existing client of ours was requested to provide. You are likely to be asked to provide this information in order for your insurer to have any chance of defending a claim against you. By utilising our Online Risk Management Portal you could take care of many of these elements in advance of any claim.

– Loss of earnings details
– Accident Book entry
– First Aider report
– Incident report
– RIDDOR form
