Summer risk management guidance

Welcome to summer

What are the common risks during the summer months? From summer fires to sun exposure for outdoor workers and the dangers associated with summer driving, there's plenty to be aware of. Taking precautions and carrying out the right checks now will help protect your business this season.

Chris Andrews, Director of Risk Management Solutions

“At Aviva, our proactive prevention philosophy to risk management allows us to help you effectively manage the types of risk that heighten during the summer months. By sharing information and advice on how to approach this, we hope we can help you continue to protect your people and your business from these common issues.” 


Summer can be a busy period for many businesses, often combining increased activity with fewer staff as employees take holidays. It’s important to understand the seasonal peaks and troughs within your own business cycle and the differing impact incidents can have.
