Being a contractor requires the right preparation. And it's not just planning the actual inner workings of the project. It's also just as important to manage environmental risk exposures that may occur and ensure there's coverage for unintended pollution events. What would happen if someone got hurt? What if property damages occurred? What if your work resulted in pollution conditions? How a company answers those critical questions is crucial to its success.

That's where AXIS Contractors Pollution Liability Insurance or CPL comes into play. CPL provides third-party insurance coverage for work performed by, or on behalf of, a contractor that results in bodily injury, property damage, and requires cleanup or incurs defense costs that occur from pollution conditions.
