Organisations generally strive and go all out to ensure regular profitable growth. In the process, they are exposed to innumerable risks on a daily basis, most of which can drain them out financially and may lead to shut down as well. Before embarking on any commercial or business activity, it will be prudent for them to protect themselves against all probable financial losses and continue the insurance coverage throughout their existence. This is not only to recover irrecoverable losses/damages, but also to ensure continuity of their operations and existence.


This is where insurance steps in to provide the necessary timely financial protection. Insurance and its role are highly significant for two reasons, viz., it provides protection against almost all probable fortuitous losses arising from every business activity and its capacity is almost unlimited, covering losses/damage of any nature, up to any extent.



The objectives of this one-day workshop are:


·         To understand the scope and role of insurance in risk management and financial protection.

·         To become aware of types of insurable risks an organization can be exposed to.

·         To identify various properties, liability and employee benefits commercial insurances.

·         To understand the scope of cover of various commercial policies.

·         To understand the standard/general exclusions, warranties, conditions, etc.,

·         To understand claims filing process and documentation.

·         To understand frequently used major insurance terms.
