Why need for Specialized Industry Focused Training Programme on Risk Assessment and Fire (Property) Insurance?

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 in different parts of the country.
