Owner Controlled Insurance Programs In Ireland
In every building construction or civil works project, there is a risk of loss or damage. The contract governing the works will place the responsibility for this loss or damage with either the contractor or the employer.
The Owner Controlled Insurance Program (OCIP) policy is a complex insurance product that has been designed specifically for employers to meet their contractual obligations, whilst protecting their investment in the project and any constructional plant they own or hire.
OCIP should be strongly considered by any construction project employers as an effective way to cover the complexity of risks involved in a cost effective manner.
