New NAHB Course Addresses Insurance Liability Concerns

In a recent NAHB survey of critical builder concerns, three of the top 10 were related to liability insurance: cost was the top concern, availability of insurance was in second place and deductibles were fourth.

At a time when liability coverage for builders is less available and more expensive and coverage is more restrictive, NAHB has developed a new course addressing comprehensive risk management strategies that will help builders stay in business.

“Risk Management/Insurance for Building Professionals” is designed to help builders, developers and remodelers avoid, minimize and transfer risks and, where possible, buy insurance and make insurance claims.

This one-day course, which is approved for Graduate Master Builder (GMB) designation credit, covers the following topics:

Hot Topics!
Need to Buy General Liability Insurance?
Confused about Subcontractor Agreements?
Structural Defects, Can They Happen to You?
Building A Better Business Through Education?

  • Identifying and classifying risks
  • Risk management techniques
  • Liability insurance
  • First-party property insurance
  • Contractor’s pollution liability insurance and other environmental coverage
  • Developing an insurance program
  • Insurance claims
  • Non-insurance risk transfer

The NAHB University of Housing has just added the course to its schedule in Las Vegas on Jan. 16, immediately prior to The International Builders’ Show. Other courses being offered before the show include:
