About the session:

This webinar will explore the main parts of a contractors insurance requirements. From small builder to plumbers through to large building firms there are an increasing number of contractors needing insurance often due to the fact that building firms now take on contractors rather than employees. These contractors need professional guidance on their insurance needs and this presentation will outline the main factors to be taken into account. As an example would a small building firm really understand the difference between labour-only and Bona-fide sub-contractors, if they do not have a broker they are in big trouble as the Insurance Act 2015 says they must make a fair presentation of risk, without help how do they do this? The presentation provided by Alan Chandler, one of the UK's most popular insurance presenters will look at the main insurance needs of a contractor. The presentation will include looking at contract works cover, understanding contractor liability cover including non-negligence cover, understanding the Business Interruption cover including understanding how to add fines and damages to the contractors’ policy and why current limits of indemnity are often not sufficient. The contractors sector will suffer badly from the hardening market and this presentation will look at how you can best get your clients’ needs correctly arranged. This presentation will be applicable for brokers, underwriters, claims staff and loss adjusters.
