A hands-on workshop to introduce participants to the principles of insurance and how the C.A.R. policy is used as a risk transfer mechanism in engineering projects. Case studies will be used to illustrate various aspects of claims and policy coverage. Typical site incidents include collapse of structure during concreting, fire during construction stage and flooding of project site. Such incidents trigger the insurance policy and it is essential that engineers appreciate how the coverage is provided.
