2 Days Non Residential Programme on Risk Assessment & Fire Insurance Claims
Media Seminar - Programme Main Page
January 30 & 31, 2012 (Monday/ Tuesday)- New Delhi
Fire and allied perils are devastating for any business venture whether it is a manufacturing unit or service provider such as hospitals and hotels.
Most businesses realize at the time of claim that the claim amount is not payable because proper risk assessment has not been done at the time of taking the policy. Businesses fail to realize that risk cannot be managed only by taking insurance policy. It is their responsibility for maintaining the safe environment to conduct the business. The insurance policy will not cover the risks associated with organization if it fails to fulfill the conditions attached to policy.
This programme will give an opportunity to participants to interact with faculty, who have vast experience of dealing with businesses and claims worldwide. Participants will be able to learn about common mistakes that cause hardship to organizations.
Fire not only causes losses to organization’s assets and life but severely affects the goodwill and future growth of the organization. In many cases owner, promoter and directors face prosecutions as we have noticed in the case of fire in certain cinema halls/hospitals in the recent years.
This seminar is primarily practical in nature and is case study based to provide practical understanding of risks associated with fire and allied perils. The aim is to discuss and come out with solutions for difficulties faced during purchase of insurance policy, lodging and settlement of claims.
The programme is structured in such a way that it promotes interaction among managers of:
  • Firms who purchase fire insurance polices
  • General Insurance company involved in business development, selling, underwriting and managing fire insurance claims
  • Insurance brokers  who are most important insurance intermediary
  • Surveyors who are an important link in processing/ settlement of insurance claims.
The expected participants would represent a mix of stakeholders as mentioned in the following table.
Managers/ Risk Mangers handling purchase of insurance and lodging of claims from
  • Corporates
  • Trading companies
  • Manufacturing firms
  • Exporters/Importers
  • Educational institutes
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Shopping Malls/Multiplexes

Academic-Faculty members/ students specialising in Insurance 10
Please note that seats will be confirmed on first come basis and optimum mix of participants as mentioned above will result in fruitful absorption of information by all stakeholders.
This executive development programme on Risk Assessment and Fire insurance Claims will provide the participants with comprehensive, multifunctional perspective on how to assess risk, maintain processes for risk mitigation, comply with statutory procedures on containment of risk and management of claims.
Some key take aways for various stakeholders will be:
1. How to get a claim payment in 60 days – Insurance client
2. How to get your client’s claim settled in 60 days – Insurance Brokers
3. How to complete your assignment in 60 days – Insurance Surveyor
4. Managing your risk - cost effectively - Insurance client/ Managers of Insurance companies.
60 days to passing of an insurance claim is what we will focus on. Time is money, as the claims process gets extended the cost for all the stakeholders goes up. It results in financial and goodwill loss for all the stakeholders, who are involved.
Keynote address will be delivered by Mr R K Elango, President of Indian Institute of Insurance Surveyors & loss Assessors (IIISLA).
