Risk Management & Insurance Solutions

Construction insurance is a specialist class of insurance with a considerable amount of complexity, even on some small projects. When you visit cities around the world, cranes dominate the skyline. The demands on insurers to provide cover and understand the complexity of the insurance needs of the builder are increasing. The expectation is that the intermediaries and insurers selling this class of business will take an active role in providing risk management solutions to the customer.

This half-day technical seminar will provide attendees with an understanding of construction insurance and the key risks that surround a project. At the end of the seminar, participants will leave with an understanding of:

  • the key risk management and underwriting considerations for construction
  • how to create a risk management culture within a construction project
  • workplace health and safety considerations
  • how to access professional assistance to better understand the complexity of the risk and insurance solutions required for a large construction project
  • the scope of construction insurance
  • construction liability
  • Employers Indemnity Insurance
  • the importance of reinsurance
