Alan & Thomas link up with Aviva Risk Management Solutions
Brokerbility member Alan & Thomas Insurance Group has teamed up with Aviva Risk Management Solutions to offer their commercial clients free access to a wide range of risk management tools and services.
The services and products, which have been made available to Alan & Thomas' clients, can be accessed online for free and comprise risk management help and advice, access to Aviva experts, as well as a range of business tools and other services. Discounted terms for training and consultancy services to help businesses manage their exposure to risk and help increase their own levels of competency have been agreed as part of the package.
Alan & Thomas Managing Director Julian Boughton said of the service, "Businesses that manage their risks by implementing health and safety training, having a business continuity plan in place and so on are a far better proposition for insurers, so we, as brokers, are able to negotiate on their behalf better terms and discounts on their premiums".
"We are proud to have joined forces with Aviva to offer this special service to our clients free of charge, which is something that very few brokers in the UK offer".
As part of the service, clients can access online e-training courses on subjects such as fire safety, food hygiene and working at height at very competitive rates. They have access to training courses accredited by organisations such as IOSH (The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health), IEMA (The Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment) and NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) that give delegates a recognised professional qualification on completion to enhance in-house capabilities.
Jeremy Wall, Aviva Risk Management Solutions' Regional Manager for the South West and Wales Region remarked "Some SME businesses struggle to source up to date advice on issues such as health and safety but with access to our risk management tools via Alan & Thomas, we are helping clients to reduce the risks to their business".
As well as training courses, clients can also have unlimited access to over two hundred free legal and business guides on topics ranging from environmental management and employment to occupational health and property protection via Aviva's knowledge store. There is also a regularly updated news section online, which publishes the very latest developments in legislation and industry specific news.
"The service we provide for our clients doesn't stop at the annual premium. We aim to become one of their trusted professional advisers and seek to offer advice and guidance on all aspects of risk management to help their business succeed" concluded Julian.
