Fish Insurance to host safety assessment track at Naidex
This year's Naidex will see us returning with our very own Safety Assessment Track. Visitors and trade professionals will be given the opportunity to test their skills and ability on our 64 sq. metre track, which will be available on the 17th and 18th March. In addition to this, our friendly and expert team will be on hand to answer any insurance queries.
Fish Insurance's Managing Director, spoke about the decision to create the assessment track for the show. They said: "As the leading providers of mobility scooter insurance, we see it as incumbent on us to help our customers wherever we can while also ensuring the safety of others too."
"Visitors to our specially designed track will be advised and guided by specialist assessors on their abilities and how they can minimise any potential risk."
Recent statistics from the Department of Transport have shown that the number of mobility scooter accidents is gradually increasing. In 2016 there were 260 incidents while in 2015 it was 222 and 2014 saw 209 incidents reported.
"As an insurance broker we must always look to innovate, and we see the Fish Assessment Track as a great way of giving not just customers but our partners a thorough understanding of scooter ownership. Ultimately, we'd like to see a standard assessment introduced that we can adhere to. This would make scooter ownership much more safe and enjoyable, while reducing the number of incidents that could occur."
Visitors to the assessment track can bring their own scooter or will be able to use the equipment supplied.
Anyone who takes the assessment will be entered into a draw to win a fantastic prize as well as a unique Fish goodie bag.
