Not only do local authorities have a duty of care towards the people it supports and governs, but they are often heavily relied upon by people, groups and sometimes whole communities.
If these services are jeopardised, these people will not get the support they require.
Protecting the service you offer should be a primary concern for public sector organisations such as councils, government departments and the emergency services, and Risk Factor can help you with this.
This insurance type can maintain your duty of care by ensuring your service can continue no matter what.
Perhaps you fail to address a public safety concern and a member of the community becomes injured. Or your emergency services department is fraught with accidents which leads to a shortage in availability. These incidents can lead to a crisis.
Insurance provides the financial support in the event of a legal claim arising due to your negligence, as well as motor insurance for any number of emergency service vehicles.
As well as trusted cover from reputable insurers, Risk Factor offer on-site risk management services as well as thorough support in the event of a crisis.
