Individuals and businesses rely on Canada’s piping to deliver water, steam, chemicals, and fuel into our heating, cooling, and lubricating piping systems. As a pipefitting contractor, you play an important role in ensuring that the pipes are assembled, installed, and maintained to high standards. That’s why we ensure you have the right insurance protection when you need it the most.
Why is Pipefitting Contractor Insurance Important?
Anything can happen when transporting equipment or on the field. When accidents or claims occur, insurance provides coverage for litigation costs and other expenses that arise. Some of the dangers include:
- Equipment hazards from operating welding torches, saws, and other heavy equipment to resize, grind, and solder the pipes.
- Hazardous materials, such as chemical fumes, are released from flammable products, oxidizers, refrigerants, and other materials.
- Injuries that arise from carrying heavy pipes, working in dangerous excavation sites, operating machinery, or performing repetitive tasks.
With pipefitting contractor insurance fitted to your working conditions, your business is always protected.
What Does Pipefitting Contractor Insurance Cover?
Pipefitting contractor insurance from ALIGNED can cover you for numerous loss scenarios from a liability and property perspective.
The exact amount and type of protection depends on the coverage you want, but here is what pipefitting contractor insurance commonly includes:
Commercial General Liability Insurance – Also known as CGL insurance, commercial general liability insurance provides coverage for bodily injury and property damage caused by the pipefitting operations performed on-site.
Commercial Auto Insurance – This is mandatory for all commercial vehicles in Canada. There are tons of commercial cars going in and out on-site. If a collision occurs, whether on the road or on-site, commercial auto insurance provides coverage for medical, property damage, loss of income, disability benefits, etc.
Surety & Bonding – Before you get a project, you might be required to have a surety bond. A surety bond is a promise backed by a surety company that guarantees the fulfillment of your future work performance on the project.
Umbrella Liability Insurance – Provides additional coverage that exceeds the protection limits of your primary policy. It also provides protection against certain claims that are not covered by your primary policy.
