Hazardous Locations
& Hazardous Activities Scheme

The scheme is designed for trades undertaking work at hazardous locations and / or those undertaking hazardous activities.

We fully understand the needs of organisations connected with construction, contracting and engineering trades and those in particular involved in high risk activities or work at hazardous locations.

There are difficulties generally with the placement of liability insurances and these are more pronounced for organisations involved in high risk activities or work at high risk locations, such as Airports, Oil, Gas, or Petro Storage Depots, Towers, Steeples, Chemical Works, Bridges, Chimney Shafts, Blast Furnaces, Viaducts, Mines, Quarries, Tunneling, Dams, Reservoirs, Docks, Harbours, Piers, Wharfs, Jetties, Ships and Railways.

As a result, in many cases premiums are increased considerably or in extreme cases, insurance is not available.

However, with our established and substantial connections with Insurance Companies and Underwriters in London, we have developed unique and special arrangements whereby insurances are arranged for liability and other covers at competitive and realistic terms.
