Can you insure against Health and Safety prosecution?

Can you insure against health safety prosecutionCan you insure against Health and Safety prosecution? That’s been a common question with a $3 million fine hanging over an organisation. Can’t we just get insurance?

Video excerpt from the June 2015 Health & Safety Seminar presented by Andrew Swensen with support from CrestClean.







Can you insure against Health and Safety prosecution?


That’s been a common question with a $3 million fine hanging over an organisation. Can’t we just get insurance? The answer is you cannot insure against prosecution. No one will offer it to you because it’s actually illegal to have it. It is a criminal offence.

The answer is you cannot insure against prosecution. No one will offer it to you because it’s actually illegal to have it. It is a criminal offence.

With the Health and Safety and Employment Act as it stands, and the new Health and Safety Act, they are criminal offences.

You can’t insure against a criminal offence otherwise I would go and rob a bank and insure against what would happen as a result.
