Risk Transfer Guidance
Risk Transfer is an important aspect of the Construction Industry. Contractors often hire subcontractors skilled in a particular trade but doing so can also make the contractor legally liable for injury or damage caused by the sub's work.
The contractor is responsible for the job site safety of their own employees, of their sub's employees and of visitors. Having proper risk transfer in place can benefit your business by protecting your assets, preserving your limits of insurance and controlling the cost of your insurance.
We have access to many construction insurance companies that can offer examples with guidance on developing proper risk transfer.
