Engineering insurance can describe any of several types of insurance policies. The term “engineering insurance“ can describe any type of insurance policy related to the erection of buildings and construction projects, including the building and operation of machinery. Construction projects and engineering often involve the use of heavy machinery and equipment that can pose a threat to the health of workers; insurance can protect engineering businesses from having to pay for such injuries if they occur.
