With over 30 years experience of providing insurance solutions to the asbestos industry, Miles Smith Insurance Solutions are well versed in the risks faced by your industry. We are the appointed insurance broker for ARCA and have a range of policies that are wide in their scope, whilst being easy to understand.

Working in a high-risk industry dictates that having the right liability and professional indemnity insurance policies in place is crucial. However, there are other key risks that you need to think about. When you work with Miles Smith, we consider all your risks and help you purchase cover against your risks, whilst providing risk management advice to help you mitigate those risks you choose to bear.

Directors and Officers need to make sure they are covered should they be accused of serious failings and they need to defend themselves against legal action. Businesses’ also need to protect their employees and help them recover if an accident occurs, so many of our clients add rehabilitation cover to their solution. These are just some of the areas we provide added value to our clients. The benefit of working with us is that you can be confident we’ll address all your risks and arrange a bespoke insurance solution to protect your business.
