Prevention is better than cure
Some suggestions to prevent risks in everyday life
The concept of insurance was born out of the necessity to protect, ensure and manage risk.
In the unfolding of daily activities, the likelihood of suffering damage is higher than we would normally expect and, the belief that fate and luck shield us from negative events accompanies, more or less unconsciously, all of us. Nevertheless, it is precisely by performing daily actions that risk is most evident.
This is one of the reasons why, nowadays, insurance companies are attempting to operate according to a different perspective, oriented towards prevention. To be able to be present when damage occurs, and to be able to preventively identify, through tools of data collection and analysis, the plausible risks as to incentivise clients to adhere to those behaviours that would prevent the unfolding of negative events.
We have identified some areas of interest characterising everyone’s daily lives and, for each, we have developed specific suggestions to prevent related risks.
