An Introduction to Construction Insurance
Organisations operating in the construction and engineering industry have particular insurance needs for their projects. Some projects’ needs cut across the organisation, others are specific to a project, or a portfolio, others are true one-offs.
Identifying these insurance needs to satisfy an organisation’s contractual obligations (and corporate values) is complex, but essential. Many insurance problems (e.g. lack of cover) are only understood when things have gone wrong, which is precisely the time you want the comfort of knowing you’re covered.
In addition, major changes in commercial insurance legislation have shaken up the procurement of insurance and management of insurance claims.
This live broadcast session will address the key points to consider.
