In addition to professional liability coverage, the policy provides contractor's with coverage for their pollution exposures at a jobsite, while transporting waste or materials from their operations and from a claim arising from waste or materials transported to a non-owned disposal site. "Contractors of all sizes carry the risk of causing a pollution incident. Unfortunately, they don't always carry the appropriate insurance or policy limits to address such incidents," according to Matt O'Malley, President of XL Catlin's North America Environmental insurance business. "While some contractors' general liability insurance policies offer limited pollution coverage, this new policy extends that coverage to realistically address a pollution incident's clean-up potential.
