Legislation And Your Commercial Insurance
4 Key Areas You Need To Be Aware OfLegislation and understanding it, is key to all our businesses. It actually plays a key part in your commercial insurance arrangements. Failure to adhere to legislation will lead not only to legal fines but also could have a bearing on your insurance and possibly lead to claims. Here are four acts which have a direct effect on your insurance: 1) Health and Safety at Work Act
- This applies to all workplaces in the UK and tells employers what their duties are to protect their employees.
- This Act is to improve road safety and reduce the casualty rate. It applies to everyone on the road and creates criminal offences of causing death while on the road.
- This Act sets out the process for services supplied to children. A Director must be appointed (of children’s services) and an elected member who is accountable for the delivery of the services.
- This Act came into being in 2007 and heralded a landmark with its introduction. This meant there was the possibility of companies or organisations being found guilty of corporate manslaughter. In the event of a gross breach of duty of care, Directors can face the might of the law.
