You may incur losses when a contractor inadvertently damages your property or exposes you to public liability claims from the public through their own negligent behaviour. Without their own adequate insurance, the contractor may not have the means to compensate you for your loss.

Any contractor that comes onto your site to perform any duties whatsoever must provide you with a current “Certificate of Currency”for Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance (where appropriate). Cover must be for no less than $10 million.
