Contractors all risk policy definition and coverage

Contractors all risk insurance is a comprehensive cover that protects work in progress as well as building materials, tools, property damage and third-party injury or damage. It usually includes contract works insurance, public liability insurance and employers’ liability insurance.

Contract works covers work in progress, building materials and tools, public liability covers third party injury and property damage, and employers’ liability covers any employees you have. Contractors all risk insurance normally covers damage caused by extreme weather, vandalism and construction faults, but will not cover general wear and tear, negligence or poor workmanship.

Why do you need contractors all risk insurance?

When working on construction projects there are many risks that you may face. Whether you are a sole trader or you employ a team of contractors and subcontractors you need to ensure that you are covered for all of these risks. Contractors all risk insurance can protect against damage to tools, building materials, people and property. Property damage can include damage caused by improper construction, damage during a renovation, and damage to temporary structures like cabins and portaloos.

Contractors all risk insurance is often taken out jointly by employers and contractors to cover all parties working on construction projects. With this type of policy, where multiple parties are named, an employer can claim for damages caused by the contractor, but the insurer cannot recover funds from the named contractor on the policy.
