Tenanted retail units, commonly found in shopping centres and department stores, pose a number of unique risk management challenges. After years of undertaking risk management surveys at these premises, we have identified a number of common issues that have the potential to either start or sustain fires.

Based on these observations, our expert Risk Engineers have issued guidance points that can assist your Real Estate customers in better managing the risk of fire at their premises.

Our interactive infographic highlights common issues and recommends control measures to minimise fire hazards and increase the effectiveness of alarms and suppression systems.

For more information on any of the points raised, or to discuss our market-leading proposition for wholesale and retail customers, please speak with your local Zurich contact.
