Information to remember regarding your insurances and COVID-19. 

 

COVID-19

As you would expect, we have been monitoring the government advice in respect of Covid 19 and the effects it will have for all businesses.  We know there is a lot to take in and we wanted to provide you, our clients with the attached information document on the Covid 19 situation that we hope will be of benefit.

In addition to the attached, we wanted to confirm to you that we are all still operating and like you, we have adjusted our working practices with all staff working from home.  We know that there is every chance you will also be adapting your business operation and would ask you to remember to keep your insurers advised of any material changes that you may make. 

Examples include:

  • Property / Premises – Is your premises now unoccupied? Do you need to consider additional security?
  • Employees / Contents - Have you invested in new IT to allow people to work from home? Are individuals/employees responsible for this equipment? Do you need to consider reviewing your business sums insured?
  • Plant - Have you passed plant back to hirers?  Do you need to ensure they have accepted liability?
  • Vehicles  - Are you planning to SORN vehicles? Will you find yourselves with a large number of vehicles at a single site for a prolonged period?  Do insurers need to be made aware of these changes?
  • Activities – Have you diversified your business activities? Will insurers see these changes as significant and need to know
