Beyond Statements of Fact

Thursday, 07 January 2021
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
    • Martin Loose

We are offering members and their guests two one hour CPD talks which will be given by Martin Loose, an independent consultant with over 30 years of commercial insurance experience, and will develop and build on delegates' knowledge of statements of fact and other controls used by property insurers.

They are a repeat of the seminars that Martin delivered in 2019 and will give members a chance to attend a webinar version of these very relevant sessions.

This second webinar will build on the topics covered previously and will explain some common risk control matters typically raised by property insurers during pre-contract negotiations and in their policy wordings.

Learning Objectives
By the end of this seminar, attendees will be able to:

  • explain what is meant by “Modern Methods of Construction” (MMC) and associated terminology including “modular”, “cross-laminated timber”, “insulated render system” and “Aluminium Composite Materials”

  • show an understanding of insurers' concerns relating to MMC

  • list the key items that should be checked on an Electrical Installation Condition Report

  • identify common heating systems that use renewable energy and the key control measures that insurers look for

  • describe the property insurance issues relating to waste storage and removal, kitchen extraction system maintenance and gas bottle storage

  • explain why insurers may ask for kitchen fire suppression systems in some catering risks and in simple terms how these systems work
