BPG Risk Review Services
Pre-Project Risk Assessments
Risk Assessment Reports (RAR) & Site Safety Survey
This review was designed to be a beneficial tool in helping to avoid potential problems down the road and immediate on-site safety concerns. BPG will work the General Contractor to help identify any potential Exposures or hazards, and make recommendation corrections.
Many Insurance Carriers and Developers today look to Builders Protection Group LLC’s expertise in identifying potential risks in a prospective insured. BPG has a thorough process by which we glean insight into an organization’s operations, practices, strengths, and weaknesses. Once we have a series of specialists review all of the information, we make recommendations for improvement. These recommendations are then followed up on to ensure compliance.
BPG’s recommendations are placed into a comprehensive and actionable report for the developer/General Contractor to use as a blueprint for improvement. BPG realizes that first and foremost, risk must be identified before it can be mitigated and managed. The steps that we recommend go a long way to help ensure that. What is also very important to this process is the manner in which it is deployed. BPG goes to great lengths to make this a positive and constructive experience that improves the operations of a developer’s organization while reducing the exposure to both the project and the developer.
BPG will perform a specific risk management review that incorporates a detailed review of the home declarations, sales agreements, subcontractor agreements and prime contact agreement. This review will ensure that all contracts have appropriate risk transfer, binding arbitration and loss mitigation wording.
Site Safety Survey
Solid safety practices go beyond simple tailgate meetings, and Builders Protection Group LLC helps developers set safety standards on their site through our Project Site Safety Survey process.
A trained BPG Certified Inspector is dispatched to review a project site at a predetermined point in a project’s development (typically in the early stages of framing). Through interviews and observation, BPG’s Certified Inspector personnel measure a site’s compliance with best practices related to its safety and security.
BPG Certified Inspector personnel notes all potential safety and security issues and articulate their findings on a Site Safety Report form to the developer and the Insurance Carrier. Re-inspection visits’ are conducted to ensure compliance.
In addition to the comprehensive checklist of items reviewed, there are always overriding directives that each Certified Inspector follows to help guide them:
– The potential for bodily harm to another person
– Other contractor personnel
– Members of the public (especially children or the elderly)
– The potential to damage someone else’s property
– Buildings or other property adjoining or close to the job site
BPG realizes that by helping a Developer improve the safety and security conditions in and around their project, we are helping to protect them and the project.
Subcontract / Document Review
One critical stage during the development process is the review of construction documents. How you approach your project can have lasting effects for years to come. We help ensure the most protection for you and help provide unified defense in the event of any claims. BPG has a series of specialists who review critical documents and then make recommendations for improvement. These recommendations are then followed up on to ensure compliance. (all recommendations made by BPG personnel should not be considered legal advice. BPG recommends all final documents be reviewed by the in-house council )
Standard areas of focus are:
– Sales Agreements
– Subcontractor Contract Agreements
– Prime Contractor Agreements
This review ensures that all contracts have appropriate risk transfer, binding arbitration, and loss mitigation wording. BPG looks to ensure that all contracts are in consistent language on these fronts.
