Business Insurance and Professional Indemnity

ATaC has worked with Howden Insurance Brokers for a number of years, improving the insurance market’s understanding of the unique risks associated with the asbestos industry, and educating our members on risk management.

The specialist asbestos industry team at Howden is available to provide insurance advice and benchmarking to ATaC members.

Howden Insurance Brokers

In 2003, Howden Insurance Brokers introduced the first professional indemnity scheme for testing laboratories and inspection bodies, following consultation with laboratory owners, ATaC, and UKAS.  Howden was able to show insurers the benefits of stringent accreditation standards, not least that accredited laboratories and inspection bodies have lower claims ratios than other professionals.
Howden provides protection for all key business critical risks including professional indemnity, employers’ liability, public and product liability, buildings and contents, and – depending on the needs of individual clients – directors’ and officers’ liability. They arrange cover and actively help clients through the process when faced with a claim.
