Spring Risk Management guidance

Welcome to spring

How can you take precautions to protect your business against risks you could encounter in the spring? Our risk consultants have brought together key resources and developed guidance to help you to identify potential risks and prepare for the challenges this season can bring.

Chris Andrews, Director of Risk Management Solutions

"As we head into spring, we consider some of the seasonal risks that your business may face. Prevention has never been more important than it is now in helping protect your business and your people. We hope you find this information useful in helping manage the risks that this season brings."

Water Leaks

Water damage is one of the most common causes of property insurance claims for owners of office buildings, hotels, retail premises and other commercial buildings, including blocks of flats.3 In the UK, a great number of property insurance claims are a result of burst pipes and leaks, causing large costs and business disruption. Reducing the risk of damage to your property, fixtures / fittings, contents, machinery and equipment and IT systems, could avoid interruption to your business. You might also be interested in leak detection solutions and our Specialist Partners, LeakSafe and Waterguard, who provide detection and prevention systems to your premises, which are available to Aviva customers at preferential rates.
