The Electrical Contractors’ Insurance Company (ECIC) has launched a Contractors Health and Safety Training Course for key partner brokers which will be run in conjunction with Marc Brocklesby, risk management consultant at OHS.

The aim of the training is to enable attendees to recognise client compliance risk and determine if their health and safety management systems reflect good practice.

Brocklesby has over 12 years consultancy experience and an understanding of loss prevention and underwriting having worked within the insurance industry for Norwich Union, Sterling and Holman’s. He is a member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and Institute of Fire Safety Managers (IFSM). In addition, he holds formally recognised qualifications in the management of asbestos and legionella.

Sharon Miller, sales manager, at ECIC said, “Health and safety is vital in our industry and it is something that should be reviewed regularly. The point of this course is to help our brokers stay up to date with the relevant legislation and also to review with them the risk assessment and management aspects of the health and safety legislation.”
