You either assume the risk (self-insure) or transfer the risk. For most of us, General Liability and Worker’s Compensation risks are too big to self-insure.
  28. 28. Build a MANAGEMENT REPORT As the general contractor on a project, it is up to you to avoid self-insuring and protect your buyer and yourself by making certain that all of the subcontractors are carrying appropriate insurances in the appropriate amounts.
  29. 29. Build a MANAGEMENT REPORT With General Liability insurance , and most especially with Worker’s Compensation insurance, it doesn’t matter until it matters… and then it matters a lot. QuickBooks makes it easy to monitor subcontractor insurance coverages. It just takes a little bit of discipline on your part.
