  • Program Name

    Contractual Risk, Insurance and Indemnities

  • Duration

    5 days


In every organization, care is taken to manage risks by seeking to eliminate those that can be removed and reducing and managing the remainder. Part of this process involves developing robust contracts which apportion risk equitably and include a structure of indemnities with contractors, supported by a comprehensive insurance regime. In addition, it is important that contract personnel understand contractual risks and what insurance can (and cannot) do to remove the financial consequences of such risk; remembering always that insurance only mitigates the effect of risk, it does not make the risk itself go away.
