Statutory Liability FAQs
Will the policy cover the costs to clean up and dispose of chemicals following a spillage or accidental discharge?
No. Coverage is provided for the legal costs incurred by the insured and the resultant fine (if any) following an allegation of a breach of the Resource Management Act 1991.
Will the policy cover any fines imposed under the Health & Safety at Work Act?
No. The Act specifically forbids insurance cover for such fines. But the policy will cover any reparations awarded to an injured worker.
