Restoration is a business that is highly competitive and often has many inexperienced, new-to-industry contractors that arise due to economic conditions and opportunities provided by fires, floods, and other natural disasters. Inexperienced contractors drive down costs and often find themselves in situations where they are unable to complete jobs or cut corners and make costly mistakes resulting in claims. Therefore, established restoration contractors must set themselves apart from the inexperienced new-to-industry contractors during the bidding or qualification process. A CERC certification can benefit restoration contractors as follows:

  • Learn about the potential environmental risks your company may face and how to mitigate them
  • Differentiate from your competition by providing environmental training to your staff and protecting yourself against potential pollution claims
  • Including the CERC Certificate with your qualifications is a great way to rise above your competition and win more bids
  • Showcase your restoration certifications and environmental risk mitigation training
  • Properly trained employees help to reduce environmental, health and safety incidents, improving your experience modification factor which affects your workers’ compensation insurance premium
  • Obtain true pollution liability insurance coverage to protect you in the event of a costly pollution cleanup due to your contracting operations at a job site
  • Should there be a claim that you are not at fault for, pollution liability insurance will cover your defense costs as well

Finding ways to differentiate your business in the marketplace can be challenging. Becoming a CERC builds confidence and relationships with customers and helps manage your environmental risks. For more information on the CERC requirements see the Class II requirements for restoration contractors.
