Insurers clarify employers’ liability for SMEs

The Association of British Insurers (ABI) has published a new guide aimed at providing clarity for small and medium-sized firms purchasing employers’ liability (EL) cover.

Produced in consultation with The Federation of Small Business, the guide also explains the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and includes a table addressing some common concerns around adherence to health and safety guidelines.

ABI director general, Otto Thoresen, comments: “Over-zealous interpretation of regulations risks bring the entire health and safety system into disrepute.

“Insurers are determined to help business understand health and safety rules and what insurers require.”

The guide can be downloaded from the ABI website.
