HSB broadens engineering services with consultancy offering

Specialist insurer HSB is expanding its engineering services to offer consultancy services aimed at enabling businesses to improve efficiency and meet their compliance obligations.

Using the technical knowledge of its engineers, HSB’s new consultancy services will seek to provide businesses with improved analysis of their equipment and health and safety practices, with the aim of helping companies to understand and maximise operational efficiencies, reduce breakdown and risk, as well as lessen maintenance and energy costs.

The new consultancy offering from HSB -- which is part of Munich Re -- includes: equipment condition and performance services aimed at reducing breakdown, maintenance, and energy costs with vibration and thermography technology used for leak detection; vertical transportation services to help improve the efficiencies and costs of lifts and escalators; and health and safety services, covering areas such as lighting, noise, work equipment and safety management.

Paula Homan, director of engineering services at HSB, said: “We know that businesses are looking to optimise efficiencies, reduce costs and most importantly, operational downtime. The launch of our new consultancy services is part of our strategy to make equipment not only compliant and safe for use, but to provide our customers, across all industry sectors, with additional added value services to help them improve the overall health and life of their equipment, and safety of their employees.”
