Awards 2010 - Risk Management: Zurich Risk Engineering
26 January 2010
Doing exactly the same as before is what's worked for Zurich Risk Engineering this year, and the result is a 2010 BusinessCar Award.
Continuing to develop its risk management strategies with corporate clients, Andy Price, Zurich's practice leader - motor fleet, said this year has been a case of "more of the same", as risk management is a message that can take time to assimilate.
Price is, however, delighted that he has seen companies maintain their budget for risk management despite the recession, showing that firms are taking their responsibilities towards keeping employees safe seriously. The profile of risk management, raised and fuelled by 2008's Corporate Manslaughter legislation, has meant it is now a permanent issue and a concern for fleets rather than something left to chance.
Zurich's risk management package is tailored to an individual fleet's needs, put together after a process
of audit and assessment to ensure it covers the necessary areas. The firm also offers bespoke consultancy, workshops and training, and follows a three-step process of firstly assess, analyse and understand, then implement selected control measures, and finally maintain, monitor and review. It quotes a number of leading companies as case studies, including General Motors, Nestle and plumbing firm Wolseley UK.
