Construction can be an extremely dangerous industry, accounting for 17.1% of total UK work related fatalities. Moving machinery, working from height and close contact with hazardous materials all contribute to this high-risk environment.
As a result, the industry has a significant amount of regulation in place to protect businesses and their employees from the heightened risk. Indeed, this is about to be revised further with the upcoming Building Safety Bill.
It is vital that businesses work closely with a knowledgeable insurance partner, that has specialist expertise in construction insurance. This should be a broker that can advise you on the complex risks, as well as understand the detailed regulations and their implications on your business.
