We will review:

Why do I need my Employer Reference Number (ERN) when I take out an insurance policy?

If you require employers liability and your business is not exempt from holding a HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) Employer Reference Number (ERN), you’ll need to provide us with your ERN. Insurers need to give employers liability insurance policy details including, where appropriate, your ERN, to the Employers' Liability Tracing Office (ELTO) who will add the details to their electronic database. The database helps people who have suffered injury or disease at work in the UK to quickly and easily find the insurance company which was providing employers liability insurance at the time their injury or disease was sustained.

What is an engineering policy and do I require one?

There is a statutory requirement to perform periodic inspections on certain types of plant or equipment. An engineering policy will provide access to and cover the cost of professional inspection services, and can be extended to provide sudden and unforeseen damage cover including breakdown. If you own or operate equipment that requires regular inspection, you may need engineering cover. Examples of plant or equipment requiring regular inspection include: lifts, forklifts, power presses, exhaust ventilation plant, stored air or steam pressure, plant fitted with hydraulics, chains, wires or ropes.
