Speaking at the Irish Insurance Federation’s annual lunch , Mr Forrester (President) said claims costs in the non-life market (liability insurance: property and personal injury) rose by 26% in 2008. He warned that with intense competition and premium income down by 7%, profit in the market fell by over 75%.
Mr Forrester’s comments give credence to anecdotal evidence that the number of personal injury claims is increasing and insurance premiums are rising. Some anecdotal evidence suggests that claims are rising, particularly in industries where security of employment is in doubt. Concerns are also being expressed about premium increases.
Next year 2012, HSA inspections will focus on the practical implementation of safety management systems, on compliance with legislation and key topics such as work at height, workplace transport safety, slips, trips and falls and chemical safety.
That is the message coming from the Authority’s chief executive, Martin O’Halloran, who during November spoke to about 200 health and safety professionals and business owners/managers at a number of events. Health & Safety Review, Dec'11 Edition.
