Contractors’ insurance protects against the financial risks present at all stages of business operations.
Construction sites are, without question, among the most dangerous workplaces in Ohio. Like all other states in the U.S., Ohio contractors, subcontractors, and specialty contractors, are continuously exposed to various safety hazards that result in workplace accidents and injuries. From roofers to construction site cleanup specialists, contractors of all trades risk severe injuries caused by careless workers or employer negligence. Unforeseen hazards leading to severe property damage or wrongful death lawsuits can have seismic consequences if not adequately safeguarded from an employee or third-party legal action.
Transferring risks to a highly-rated contractors’ insurance package will provide a formidable defense against falls, electrocution, being caught in, between, or struct by objects, and property damage exposures.
Ohio contractors are encouraged to visit their city, county, or state licensing agencies to confirm laws, regulations, upfront fees, and required documentation before beginning operations.
