Excavation Contractors Insurance
As an excavation contractor, you face significant liability risks each time you begin to move earth. These can include risks associated with adequate soil compaction and meeting proper grades for water runoff, as well as first-party property damage exposures to your heavy equipment. You also face risks associated with equipment operator error; hitting underground utilities that can cause widespread damage; and worker injury from strains, falls from equipment, or being caught in or under heavy materials and equipment.
Soil conditions prone to movement, such as landslides and mudslides, soil runoff on the jobsite and other risks associated with environmental regulation, are a real concern for excavation contractors.
We have a deep understanding of the business risks you face and deliver the Risk Control, and Claim expertise your business demands. Our CGL coverage does not include an Electronic Data exclusion. Along with Crew Training International (CTI), we’ve created the construction-specific Site SenseTM training program to teach important communication skills in an effort to reduce accidents and improve your bottom line.
