Environmental & Contractors Professional Practice

Did you know that nearly every construction or commercial type of business has at least one environmental liability exposure?  Pollution liability occurrences may be infrequent, but when they do happen, they are often large, expensive and complicated.  General liability coverage is written for just that, general liabilities, and may not cover pollution conditions for which your business may be held responsible.  These conditions could include a discharge of pollutants brought to the work site, or release of pre-existing pollutants at the site, amongst many others, and they can be sudden or gradually occur over time. 

Offering Contractors Pollution Liability (CPL), and Contractors Professional Liability for construction accounts and Site Pollution Liability (SPL) for commercial accounts, Travelers Environmental and Contractors Professional Practice works with customers to help prevent potential gaps in coverage that a general liability policy may not cover.  Travelers also now offers contractors combined professional liability and pollution liability coverage within one form. This new combined policy protects contractors against professional liability risks, pollution liability risks, and pollution liability resulting from professional errors, acts, and omissions.  A single set of limits apply to all three exposures.   And if faced with a covered loss, Travelers is there to resolve claims with the experience and resources that deliver prompt results for your business and insurance products tailored to your unique needs. 

Businesses face new and historical environmental exposures that can damage property and company reputations. Some are visible, like the chemicals used in a manufacturing process, and some are hidden, like the leakage from tanks that can contaminate a property. They can be sudden or gradually occur over time. No business today can risk being inadequately protected against such environmental threats.

Travelers' experienced team of environmental underwriters, Risk Control professionals and Claim specialists provide environmental liability coverage tailored to the needs of businesses, such as contractors, manufacturers, laboratories, colleges and many others.

We keep up-to-date with changing federal and state regulations and help protect against environmental exposures and the costly pollution clean-up costs and lawsuits they can generate.
