Engineering Insurance including Machinery & Equipment Breakdown and Inspection Services

Talk to us about the broad range of engineering, inspection services and technology insurance products available providing cover for a broad range of industry sectors including construction, computer, energy and equipment breakdown.

Temperature Controlled System Breakdown

Equipment breakdown and damage insurance is not usually covered in property or warranty insurance policies. Flexibility to cover equipment breakdown, deterioration of stock, including stock in refrigerated vehicles or temporary cold storage and loss of income risks in one policy. Amongst other incidents, cover is provided for machinery and equipment operated off site and hired in for short-term use. Contact us for more details of this type of cover.

Product recall

Manufacturers have product recall exposure and this type of insurance should be considered as protection of the firm’s cash flow and ultimately its balance sheet as a product recall event will have a direct impact on its reputation and therefore, its future sales.

Many firms mistakenly believe they can rely upon suppliers and other third party participants in the manufacturing process to support or to cover the cost of a product recall process. However, this can be a high risk dependency as it is difficult to assess another’s firms ability to pay for a recall incident and often contractual agreements waive rights of redress.

Another mistaken belief is that a firm can manage the product recall costs. However, beyond tthe costs which result from products withdrawal including mislabelling, (these are often not the main costs), specialist product recall insurance also includes covers such as, rectification costs to re-manufacture the products including redesign of the manufacturing process if necessary, loss of sales following the issue, public relations management, third party legal damages and retailers’ costs.

Also, see below.

Pollution and Environmental Impairment Liability Insurance

Most standard insurance covers do not cover businesses for any liability for pollution or environmental impairment from their use of land or buildings, particularly if this liability follows gradual impairment.

Environmental Impairment Liability Insurance provides insurance protection for those businesses whose activities involve the potential to cause environmental damage, such as, keeping oil tanks or other holding tanks, use of pesticides, potential for toxic substances to drain into public systems or waterways, potential for air pollution and so on.

Environmental liability insurance covers the cost of repairing environmental damage arising from both sudden and gradual pollution, third party liability, clean up costs and legal defence costs.
