The House Insurance Built
Risk Management for Builders & Contractors

Conclusions and References


Professionals in the construction and contracting industry are no strangers to risk. You work the types of jobs that leave you and your workers prone to injury, your tools and materials prone to ever-increasing prices, and your uncompleted projects prone to the fury of Mother Nature. That's why it's so important to protect your investment — that is, your business — with a solid risk management plan. The best risk management plans combine savvy risk mitigation procedures with effective insurance policies. That way, you prevent the incidents that can be avoided and have financial assistance for those that can't.
