  • Welcome Introduction of participants Introduction referring to purpose, aim/objectives etc
  • We provide the largest technical risk management services in Europe, second largest in US. We have a global network of over a 1,000 risk specialists operating in over 35 countries who are trained to the same standards and work in an integrated manner as one global team; and therefore ensure consistent level of service regardless of where they are in the world. Our Risk Engineers undertake 56,000 site assessments every year, which means they are vastly experienced and have a depth of knowledge to draw upon. Our Risk Engineers undertake 138,000 risk assessments annually. This means we are always looking for ways to improve what we do; our Risk Engineers work to global technical standards to review the systems and methods we use. Having this much scope and expertise means they are practiced experts. Zurich Risk Engineering manages currently over 650 international Risk Engineering programs globally in all region . We have established policies and procedures in our Business Management System which are regularly audited and approved according to ISO 9001 standards, which means that you can be sure of a globally consistent level of service, particularly for global risk engineering programs.
  • [You can click onto each on of these five areas to take you to a sub-slide] Mismanaged exposure can cost you money and shareholder value, and prevent you from taking advantage of the opportunities that drive innovation and growth. A solid business resilience framework helps you to identify your key exposures and risks relevant to your business objectives that can threaten your viability. Business resilience management provides the structure for dealing with risks systematically, holistically and successfully. By minimizing the negative effects of risk on your capital and earnings, business resilience is crucial for an organization to be better positioned against competitors. Zurich’s business resilience proposition takes an enterprise risk management approach and is made up of five integrated areas including: Total Risk Profiling™ Business Interruption Modeling Supply Chain Assessment Business Continuity Management Business Impact Analysis
  • Zurich uses a consistent risk grading methodology: This brings consistency, so that locations in a global program are reviewed and assessed based on the same criteria, no matter where they are in the world. This allows accurate benchmarking for comparison reasons We are then able to accurately select and price the risk we insure The customer is given full transparency around pricing and is given a good idea about where risk improvement activity needs to be given priority.
  • Our final key message is that Risk Engineering is a thought leader. We do this by monitoring the changing risk landscape to provide risk insights such as, articles, case studies, legislation updates and benchmarking. Risk Engineering recently published studies on: ‘risks associated with imported products’, ‘Avian Flu’ and ‘risks in the semi-conductor industry’ or ‘supply chain management’ . Also, Risk Engineering works collaboratively with Underwriting and Claims to understand loss trends, which bring new insights. We also hold periodic risk forums and conferences where we pull together groups of customers with our risk engineering experts, to share experiences (learn from success stories/ losses), network and develop leading edge best practice. The Risk Engineering Global Workshop in 2008 attracted over 130 global customers from 78 corporations. Risk Engineering’s online tool Knowledge Navigator is a powerful search engine providing the latest technical and risk management related information. We create several webcasts/webinars for our customers, e.g. to help businesses improve resiliency and prepare for risks associated with Swine Flu A(H1N1) or Hurricanes. Risk Engineering ensures that our staff and customers are trained in the latest risk management tools and techniques. We provide a variety of tailored training to customers helping them to understand, evaluate and mitigate risks themselves. Our own Zurich Risk Engineering Course is also available to customers. We offer or regional and local classroom or online training. Risk Engineering has trained corporate HSE directors from over 40 global companies. Our online tools (e-tools) are designed to provide you with interactive hands-on solutions to monitor risk management programs, get relevant risk information, undertake management programs, learn online, and many more: Zurich Direct Risk Assessment, Risk Features, Virtual University, Virtual Risk Manager Fire/Fleet.
