What is Contractors’ All Risk Insurance?

This policy provides insurance during building works. It covers items such as tools, building materials, and any plant and equipment that’s on-site.

Sometimes referred to as contract works insurance, Contractors All Risk Insurance can be as vast as you need it to be, depending on the size and scale of your project, and any contractual requirements. It generally consists of three main covers:

Multiple people icon
Employers’ liability Insurance

As an employer, your construction company is legally required to have employers’ liability insurance.

Should an employee be injured while working, your employers’ liability insurance can cover compensation and legal costs.

Public Liability Icon
Public Liability Insurance

This element of cover is for if a third-party claims to have been injured, received damage to their property, or suffered a loss because of your negligence.

As an example, if a scaffold falls and injures a member of the public, your public liability insurance will help to protect you and your business from the financial implications of a claim made against you.

Contract works icon
Contract Works Insurance

This will make sure your building works are reinstated or repaired should they become damaged during the construction project. That is, the build is protected from ‘all risks’.

A contract works policy covers the property you’ve been contracted to work on and the materials necessary to complete the work. It encompasses two aspects: permanent and temporary works.

Permanent works refers to the property being built and any unfixed materials you’ve purchased for the construction project, like bricks, pipes, or steel. Ordinarily, the unfixed materials are protected under the contract works cover whether they’re on-site, in transit, or at the supplier.

Temporary works refers to items such as scaffolding or site huts etc. Those items that aren’t part of the build, but are necessary for the project to take place.
