Anyone who owns or manages a construction site in Australia will know what dangers exist at work. Accidents are a part of life, but on a project they can have disastrous results and throw your timeline out the window. And, with building materials often costing thousands of dollars, there can be significant financial repercussions if anything happens to your supplies.

Thieves will be drawn to construction sites, as materials can easily be stolen and sold on for a quick profit. Sites are also an easy target for vandals, with damage from vandalism bringing big costs for your business and delaying your work.

Acts of nature like extreme wind and rain can also harm your construction materials beyond repair, creating a big headache for you and holding up the client’s timeline. Every project is at its most vulnerable during the construction phase, especially due to Australia’s wild weather.

The impact from these challenges can go well beyond the immediate scope of your current project. For many tradespeople, their business rests on a strong record, which reassures future clients. Recovering from serious damage to one of your construction sites will not only leave you out of pocket, it can also damage your standing with future clients who are looking for reliability.

Faced with these challenges, it is important that your business is covered by the right construction insurance to protect your materials, construction site and reputation.

What does Construction Insurance cover?

Construction insurance is designed to cover your materials and the building being constructed – ingredients which every tradesperson needs to keep their business running. A comprehensive construction insurance policy will ensure that your building materials are protected against loss or damage throughout the construction period from events such as accidental damage, fire, theft or weather events.

A construction insurance policy from Trade Insurance will also contain liability cover against some of the potential legal problems which can arise on a construction site. With legal disputes often originating from everyday issues, this level of cover is very important for anyone managing a building site.

Given the increasingly litigious nature of society and the costs involved in construction, it is more important than ever to make sure you have the right levels of insurance cover for any of your business activity.
