Risk management pervades almost all aspects of the construction process, while fluctuating market conditions, unstable regulatory environments and global economic shifts affect a construction firm's day-to-day operations.

First Steps

The best place to start is to evaluate project-related risks. Determine what's appropriate to insure in conventional insurance markets and what's not.

What to Look For

It's important to establish an appropriate level to accept some monetary level of deductibles or retention through a thorough analysis of claims history. When looking for insurance companies, try to find firms with a solid and long-lasting reputation to know your company is in good hands—look for Loss Control that focuses your needs and helps prevent future claim activity.
