Bonasystems joins risk management association
02 August 2016
Bonasystems, a leader in slip accident risk management, has become a sponsor member of Airmic, the UK trade association for risk and insurance management professionals, the only slip risk specialist to do so.
Slips and trips are the biggest cause of workplace accidents in the UK with 95 per cent resulting in broken bones, costing UK companies over £750 million a year.
Joining Airmic is part of a wider strategy to raise awareness of the cost-benefits of slip prevention within the insurance community. Bonasystems already works with several insurers to improve claims defensibility and mitigate the risk of health and safety breaches and fines. Clients using Bonasystems’ slip risk management solutions see, on average, a 50 per cent reduction in accident frequency.
Christian Harris, commercial director of Bonasystems, said:: “Risk management is becoming increasingly important at board level and slip risk is a key issue for companies. This has been exacerbated by the recent change to sentencing guidelines for breaches of health & safety which we expect to result in some high profile multi-million pound law suits. We hope to carry a message to risk managers that prevention is much more effective than cure.”
Bonasystems has 15 years’ experience in preventing slips and trips. It works with many of the UK’s leading companies in leisure, retail, transport and hospitality to identify and mitigate against slip risk. In addition to its Airmic partnership, it is also accredited with Safecontractor (the UK’s fastest growing health and safety assessment scheme) and is a member of the UK Slip Resistance Group.
Susi Ozkurt, sales and marketing manager of Airmic, added: “We are excited to have Bonasystems as one of our MarketPlace sponsors, as we are now focusing on growing our list of risk service providers."
