CCIPs can give general contractors peace of mind, as they ensure that subcontractors are properly insured. In addition, because there are fewer insurance policies to consider, CCIP claims are streamlined and easier to manage.

Program sponsors - who are working in conjunction with their brokers, the insurer, and safety professionals - can maintain centralized safety and risk management services. By centralizing these services, program sponsors can reduce the frequency and severity of injury and property damage claims.
CCIPs can also provide general contractors with the ability to include subcontractors on a project who might otherwise not be able to bid on the job, given their limited scale and experience.
