Why need for Specialized Industry Focussed Training Programme on Engineering Insurance?

Most businesses realize at the time of claim that the claim amount is not payable because proper risk assessment was not done, and right insurance policy has not been purchased with proper policy wording at the time of taking the policy. Businesses fail to realize that risk cannot be managed only by taking any insurance policy without going into depth. It is the responsibility of Insured for maintaining proper accounts 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.

The rapid industrialization of our country has led to increasing use of machines in industry. We know that use of modern/ advanced/ electronically controlled machinery results in increased/ quality production output. We also realize that despite proper care and maintenance of machinery, in the event of mishap, accident and breakdowns may yet occur and in generally the extent of damage will be quite high and may also lead to fatal or non‐fatal injuries to human beings nearby which can be potential sources of financial loss and could even result in the closure of business.
