About policy types

Having a fixed list of insurance policy types gives you more control of the information being entered in WhosOnLocation. It avoids double-ups and spelling mistakes, controls naming conventions, and it keeps information more organized. This list can be managed from the Insurance Settings.

Policy types are used when adding policies to a contractor organization's account.

Every account comes with 26 default policy types. These are fully customizable and should be adjusted to meet your needs where required. The default types are:

  • Auto
  • Asset
  • Building
  • Business Interruption / Loss of Profits
  • Casualty
  • Commercial
  • Commercial Motor Vehicle
  • Contract Works Insurance
  • Directors’ and Officers’ Liability
  • Electronic Equipment & Data
  • Employers Liability
  • Employment Disputes Insurance
  • Errors & Omissions Indemnity
  • General
  • Health
  • Liability
  • Material Damage
  • Machinery Breakdown
  • Marine Cargo (including transport by sea, air, road and rail)
  • Professional Indemnity
  • Public Liability
  • Statutory Liability
  • Sub-Contractors / Labour Only Payment Guarantee
  • Tools, Plant and Equipment
  • Workers Compensation Insurance
  • Other
