The offshore & energy industries have been changing for a long while now, and recently the insurance requirements for businesses operating within these sectors have changed significantly.
If you are a contractor who is working through an agency, it will be a requirement that you have certain insurance policies in place. For those who work offshore, these will primarily be Public Liability Insurance and Employers Liability Insurance. It may also be a requirement that you have Professional Indemnity Insurance & Personal Accident Insurance. Some agencies will have additional clauses included as part of your contract which must be met. These include Waiver of Subrogation, Hold Harmless, Indemnity to Principal Clause and Corporate Manslaughter.
The insurance policies we provide as part of our Offshore Contractors Insurance Scheme have been built with this in mind, and should be suffice in ensuring you meet these conditions.
