Understanding Construction Pollution and Professional Liability (CPPL) Exposures

Gain an understanding of the pollution and professional risks and exposures faced by members of the construction industry.

The construction industry is constantly evolving. As both government actors and the private sector place a greater emphasis on environmental concerns, even traditional construction activities can create significant exposure for pollution liability. Furthermore, the complexity of many construction projects and the introduction of new construction contracts have led to contractors assuming additional design and engineering responsibilities. In light of these developments, traditional insurance programs may leave significant gaps in coverage. This topic will help contractors understand ways to limit these exposures through insurance coverage and contractual risk transfer. This topic will provide an overview of Construction Pollution and Professional Liability insurance, including identifying the risks that it is designed to insure and potential disputes that may arise when making a pollution or professional liability claim. You will also learn how to limit your exposure through contractual risk transfer and the structuring of a comprehensive insurance program. This material provides critical information for contractors to minimize potential liability.
