Construction Employers' Liability claims index

19 December 2017

We are pleased to launch our third Employer’s Liability Index, our annual benchmarking exercise for construction industry risks and claims.

Construction is a dangerous activity. If not carefully managed, the risks can result in death or serious injury.

The UK’s largest construction companies participate in this annual benchmarking exercise. We analyse the financial aspect of this construction risk: the cost of personal injury claims on their employers’ liability (EL) insurance.

Benchmarking allows us to see how this risk changes over time. Each participant’s details are made available to them confidentially. By doing this, we help individual companies understand their risk performance, which is a key element to improving their risk management.

Employee injuries affect multiple aspects of your business, from insurance costs and management time to reputation. In this whitepaper, we analyse the combined EL claims data in four key areas and ask the following questions:

  1. How many claims are being made?
  2. What is the average cost of a claim?
  3. How much is the total cost relative to the cost of the resource?
  4. How efficiently are claims handled?
