General Information

Overview

In Construction Risk Management you will learn the construction-specific nuances of risk management. You will also learn why standard insurance programs have unique implications for contractors and how to evaluate effective strategies for managing construction risks. Viewed through the lens of the construction risk and insurance framework, this unit provides you with an understanding of the strategies for mitigating, transferring, and insuring construction risks. You will learn how risks are commonly allocated in a construction project and how to identify variances between a contractor’s insurance coverage and the total project risks. You will gain the knowledge to monitor and identify statutory changes and judicial rulings that impact the contractor’s liabilities as well as the coverage they have in place to mitigate potential liabilities.
