There’s a lot to worry about on a construction site, such as getting the job done right, being on time, staying within budget and avoiding injuries. In today’s world, though, there’s another important consideration: environmental risk. Virtually any job site is at risk for a costly environmental incident. Any company working on a project should have a risk management plan and adequate insurance in place.
That’s why environmental insurance isn’t just for contractors who work with hazardous substances. Virtually any type of construction activity has environmental risk. At C&S Specialty Underwriters, we offer Contractor’s Pollution Liability (CPL), a vital coverage that can help protect a wide variety of contractors from financial difficulties/disaster. Yet many general and subcontractors don’t realize they need it.
Our Environmental Package policy offers Commercial General Liability and Contractor’s Pollution Liability for environmental contractors, Commercial General Liability and Professional Liability for environmental consultants, and monoline Contractor’s Pollution Liability for non-environmental contractors. All combined policies are written on ISO commercial general liability based forms.
Some contractors are contractually required to purchase CPL coverage as part of working on an individual construction project. Even those contractors that aren’t required to purchase CPL should consider purchasing it as part of a basic asset protection/risk management plan. One environmental incident can financially devastate a general contractor or subcontractor.
We provide coverage for bodily injury, property damage and cleanup costs arising from operations of the policyholder. Perhaps even more important, there’s a broad pollution definition that includes fungi, bacteria, allergens and electronic magnetic fields. Not all environmental coverage is created equal — it’s important to compare coverages. The only thing worse than being uninsured for environmental risks is being underinsured.
Our goal is to be a leading provider of a diversified portfolio of specialty insurance products to select agent, broker and carrier partners with a focus on technology to deliver those products. We provide a superior customer experience to our agents and brokers through a foundation of sound underwriting and operating practices to protect our carrier partners. We make it easy to get the coverage contractors and consultants need. Environmental insurance may be complicated, but getting the coverage you need from C&S Specialty Underwriters is simple.
