The construction industry faces multiple challenges and risks ― probably much higher than any other industry.

From technical risks such as incomplete designs, inadequate site investigations, availability of suitable material, appropriateness of specifications to logistical risks (lack of transportation facilities & good resources); the construction industry is plagued by risks across each stage of a project’s development. Project delays, inflation, local taxes pose serious threats to the industry and can have severe financial consequences. Changing political systems and policies hamper the course of progress. Customs and import restrictions and procedures and difficulties in disposing of plant and equipment can be operational hazards.

A high incidence of occupational ill health can have a devastating effect on individuals, families and employers (who may face fines and prosecution).

Construction insurance is imperative if you own, run or manage a construction or building site, or work as a contractor within the construction industry. If you are an employer, it provides safeguards should any of your employees be injured while working on site. Construction insurance can also cover materials and machinery in the event of theft, or damage.
