Machinery breakdown can cripple plant operations and lead to expensive downtime. It’s critical to keep boilers, mechanical systems, and electrical equipment in top shape while having contingency plans for malfunctions or failures.

Today’s business climate makes managing machinery breakdown even more complex. Experienced workers are retiring or job-hopping to pursue new opportunities, leaving a knowledge gap that can lead to human-caused failures. Also, supply chains are still not back to normal, meaning procuring parts takes much longer than you might realize.

In this webinar, we will explore boiler and machinery risk engineering. The presentation will highlight:

  • Preventative measures to reduce machinery breakdown
  • How to reduce the possibility of human error.
  • Why business continuity planning is critical.
  • How B&M risk evaluations improve underwriting and insurance renewal outcomes.

Note: All downloads and related contact information will be accessible to the webinar sponsor.
