Piling Contractors Insurance


Insurance companies are naturally cautious when it comes to providing insurance cover for Piling Contractors. This is because of the hazards associated with piling activities such as noise, vibration, possible contact with plant or machinery during lifting, slewing and pitching of piling element, plant instability due to gradients and variable ground conditions, buried or overhead services and collapse of excavations.

The stability of nearby structures is a primary concern as the cost of making structural repairs or rebuilding after damage has occurred is likely to be very high.

There are also health concerns to be factored in when determining whether or not to provide insurance cover (and the premium to be charged) such as the risk of contact with contaminated risings / ground water and contact with hazardous materials or dust.
