THE NEED FOR CPL COVERAGEContractors face many pollution risks stemming from operations at their job sites. These include contaminated soil exacerbation, accidental release of fuel oil, chemicals and toxic gas spills from broken pipelines/utilities, and leaks from stationary and mobile fuel tanks, microbial matter, legionella, silt and sediment runoff, asbestos and lead exposures. Most CGL policies contain an absolute pollution exclusion, leaving contractors to face an uninsured loss. Our CPL insurance helps protect contractors from a wide range of pollution risks associated with construction projects.

environmental damage that takes place during the policy period resulting from contractors covered operations and completed operations
Self-insured retention (SIR) programs; starting at $5,000
Limits up to $25 million
Available countrywide and in Canada on a non-admitted basis
