HSB launches new e-trade products

HSB has launched two new specialist engineering and technology products on its UK e-trade platforms.

Available on Acturis and HSB Fast Track, the specialist engineering and technology insurer’s new products are aimed at making it easier for brokers to trade engineering inspection and equipment breakdown risks.

HSB’s Inspection Services product, serviced via HSB’s network of engineer surveyors, provides businesses with periodic engineering inspections to comply with applicable health and safety legislation.

HSB’s Machinery and Technology Combined product provides insurance cover for equipment breakdown risks. The product is designed to also include inspection services, offering customers combined protection for their equipment assets.

Martin Parker, head of digital trading at HSB, said: “Periodic engineering inspections of workplace plant, machinery and equipment form a vital part of an employer’s duty to ensure conformity to health and safety regulatory requirements. However, engineering inspection services can be seen as complex and time-consuming to trade by brokers. HSB’s e-trade products are designed to make this process simpler by enabling brokers to select equipment, quote and bind with ease.”
