Insurance & Risk Management
Construction subcontractors reduce the likelihood of risks like fire, equipment theft, and embezzlement, by implementing effective risk management plans. Advisors such as attorneys, insurance agents, accountants, and surety bond producers can provide a wealth of knowledge on managing risk, including helping subcontractors to select the right insurance and risk management products. They can also help subcontractors manage risks unique to the business of construction, such as:
- Property damage that occurs on multi-employer job sites.
- Payment default by prime contractors or project owners.
- The costs of project changes and delays.
- And more.
ASA educates subcontractors about working with their professional advisors to develop risk management plans that suit their businesses. This includes working with other industry associations to develop and publish best practices and model contract language that fairly allocates risk. ASA advocates for laws that limit the unfair shifting of risk to subcontractors.
