News: Supporting you with the right insurance cover

Here at Towergate, we're delighted to be working together with the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors to support you.

As ergonomists, you ensure the health, comfort and protection of people by being concerned with the safety and efficiency of equipment and systems, but you have a duty to act with reasonable skill and care. Professional liability claims aren’t just about 'errors' or 'omissions', they can include actions for breach of confidentiality, infringement of copyright and breach of data protection. Our Professional Liability policy protects you against the expense and worry associated with potential legal action taken against you, such as contract or copyright disputes, professional negligence and breach of confidentiality. We provide a variety of cover in one product, so there’s no need to purchase a portfolio of different policies to ensure you are protected against various possibilities. Our specialist Professional Liability policy provides essential cover for Professional Indemnity, Public Liability, Product Liability and Libel and Slander.

We offer free access to our COVID-19 Information Hub

We want to support you during this unprecedented time and have launched our dedicated COVID-19 information hub that is available for you to utilise. This online hub includes a link to a free Health and Safety and Employment Law hub provided by our commercial partners, Ellis Whittam, as well as there being many business planning articles and risk alerts available for you to download, to advise, guide and support you in this difficult time. Visit for more information.

We also offer specialist cyber insurance for you and your business
