Press Release: National E&S Insurance Brokers® Partners with CapSpecialty® for Covid-19 Contractor’s Cleanup Coverage Program

National E&S Insurance Brokers®, a California-based wholesale broker specializing in all environmental and construction insurance lines, announces an exclusive Covid-19 cleanup program with CapSpecialty®, a leading provider of specialty insurance for small to mid-sized businesses in the U.S.  This program aims to provide affirmative pollution coverage for contractors doing commercial Covid-19 clean up and remediation that is not traditionally covered under a contractor’s standard General Liability policy.  These contractors would include commercial janitorial contractors, pest control contractors, general and trade contractors, contractors using electrostatic spraying systems (i.e., SteraMistTM ) and abatement contractors who have completed training program IICRC S540, OSHA Hazwoper, CCHR-T/S, or ECT/ECS.  The product is available in all 50 states with restrictions in New York. 

“Having identified a coverage void in this area, we worked with the Environmental team at CapSpecialty to analyze the risks, identify steps to mitigate those risks, and provide coverage for those willing to take those mitigation steps,” said Ross Driscoll, Sr., President and CEO of National E&S Insurance Brokers, Inc.  “We are thrilled to be working with Ross and his team at National E&S to deliver an essential product that addresses a void in the market,” added Tony Anzalone Head of Specialty Casualty at CapSpecialty, Inc.
