Insurance and fire risks forums

Monday, 13 October, 2003

Industry and insurance experts will talk to Australian food manufacturers about rising insurance premiums and facility fire risks at half-day forums in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in October.

The forums will explore the reasons for the price hike in insurance premiums and strategies for managing the risk of fire in food manufacturing plants.

Leading insurer AON Risk Services, risk management consultants RiskTech, the Claim Assistance Bureau, and Wiley - who design and construct food processing facilities - will give a series of presentations on the changing insurance industry; prevention, protection and planning strategies to help manage the risk of fire and its impact on a business; and insurance- and fire-smart approaches to facility design and construction. The use of insulated panel systems, such as those made from expanded polystyrene (EPS), will be a focus of the forum.

The 'Don't Get Burnt' forums are open to project decision-makers, engineers, company accountants, chief executive officers, risk managers and assessors.

The forums will be held from 7 am to 12.30 pm in each location. The Brisbane forum will be held on Monday 27 October at the Stamford Plaza Brisbane; the Sydney forum will be held on Wednesday 29 October at the Stamford Plaza Double Bay; and the Melbourne forum will be held on Thursday 30 October at the Stamford Plaza Melbourne.
