Sedgwick have been leading the Loss Adjusting industry with our approach to flood resilience.  As part of the Steering Committee for the newly released Resilience Code of Practice, we have been helping define the right process for implementing a Flood Resilient Strategy.

Only by clients fully assessing the flood risk to their property portfolio, can a flood resilience strategy be developed, investing in resilience where it is cost-effective. We will outline the stages that need to be followed to take this strategy forward, reviewing a case study where a business is currently investing in resilience following a flood incident, in conjunction with their insurers.

  • Understanding flood risk, identifying buildings in high flood risk zones

  • Considering a resilience strategy in terms of Loss prevention or Loss reduction
  • Providing recommendations in terms of physical resilience / business resilience
