Leading ethical insurer adds drones to risk assessment kit

Ansvar Insurance has become the first insurer to obtain its Operators Certificate from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and has recently revealed the addition of drones to their risk assessment toolkit.

Ansvar currently have four certified risk advisers to offer nationwide coverage of this new level of service especially useful in risk mitigation and assessment.

Drone technology will allow Ansvar’s risk advisers to survey properties and access areas that were previously inaccessible in a safe and cost effective way.

“Investing in the use of drones is a natural consequence of being a risk-led organisation that embraces the latest technology. Drones, along with other technological innovations such as thermographics, allows Ansvar to provide the most robust and comprehensive risk mitigation and assessment programs for our clients,” says Warren Hutcheon, Ansvar CEO.

“CASA certification and the development of an operating model that considers safety and privacy concerns has been a 12-month process, and we are very excited to be able to offer this service to our clients,” he adds.

Ansvar is a subsidiary of Ecclesiastical Insurance Office plc (Ecclesiastical) which was established in the UK in 1887.
