Engineering Inspection and Insurances
What is engineering inspection cover?
Engineering inspections are an essential safety component for any organisation working with machinery and construction materials.
As part of our manufacturing and construction department, here at Rigby Financial, we offer a highly-proficient engineering inspection insurance service that will enable your business to maintain its compliance and safety regulations to ensure that your working environment is legally secure.
Engineering inspection insurance is vital for any business looking to protect themselves against accident claims as a result of an unsafe environment. Our professional engineering insurance brokers will ensure that they find you the ideal cover for your organisation, which could include the following inspections:
- Electrical equipment, which could include anything from fixed wiring to kitchen appliances
- Lifting apparatus including lift trucks and cranes
- Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) such as extractor fans and spray booths
- Pressure units including boilers, refrigerator systems and air receivers
- Power presses and press brakes
- Conveyor systems
- Tractors and bulldozers
At Rigby Financial, we aim to protect all our clients, which is why we only find the top engineering insurance policies, which include thorough inspections performed by experienced engineering surveyors. These experienced inspectors will ensure that all your processes and equipment meet the statutory regulations and guidelines. These inspections will establish whether your business is operating in a safe and secure manner, which will not only protect your brand’s reputation but will also prevent potential injury claims or future complaints.
Why you need engineering inspection insurance?
If you work in any level of trade, construction or manufacturing, you will be well aware of the various statutes, regulations and legislation that all companies must adhere to.
Having regular checks and engineering inspections on all processes and equipment is a must, in order to ensure your organisation is compliant.
If the right checks are not in place, your equipment could be a serious health and safety risk. You could be reported to the HSE. If a member of staff is injured as a result of your negligence, you could be open to a costly court case or sued.
How can you benefit from our engineering inspection services?
Engineering inspection insurance will ensure that your equipment receives the necessary checks, in line with HSE guidelines. You’ll be safe in the knowledge that any faulty equipment or defects will be picked up by an inspector.
You could also benefit from an additional insurance policy that covers the costs for any breakdown of machinery, including:
- Temporary hire of replacement property
- Machinery business interruption
- Breakdown of computer
- Electronic equipment
- Your own plant or a hired in plant
- Deterioration of stock
