Manage your insurance policies
It's important to maintain accurate and up-to-date records about your organization's insurance policies to ensure that you are covered in the worst-case scenarios. It is also important to let those businesses that you are contracting to know that you have these insurance policies in place, either for peace of mind or, in some cases, to gain access to their workplaces.
Some businesses require certain insurance policies to be up-to-date before your employees will be allowed to sign into their workplaces. This is fully up to each business to decide and, if you're not sure about their policy, you will need to discuss their policy with them.
You can view, add, edit, or delete any of your organization's relevant insurance policies from the Insurances section of the Contractor Portal.
