Location: The Tett Centre, Rehearsal Hall, 370 King Street West, Kingston, ON
Time: Workshop Program 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM
(Lunch and refreshments will be available from 12:30 PM)
What is most likely to draw your practice into a professional liability claim? How does “what tends to go wrong”, “who complains” and “who else is implicated” vary with building type? What can you do to lower your risks? A recent review for Pro-Demnity Insurance Company has revealed interesting patterns among the claims made against Ontario Architects. The “Claims Experience Workbook” (published jointly by the OAA and Pro-Demnity in 2017) highlights numerous strategies that architects can take to manage their risks.
This Workshop will be “hands-on”. Using a life-like scenario inspired by the claims history, you will use the Workbook during the session. As a result, you should leave better-prepared to apply the Workbook, and related resources, to a current project in your office.
If you attended a Pro-Demnity-sponsored presentation of “Lessons from Claims” (during 2016-2017), you will experience very limited re-capitulation of the information presented there: this is a chance to take the lessons and apply them. If you did not attend “Lessons from Claims”, this Workshop will help you catch up and keep current.
Con-Ed Points: Attendance at the event will qualify for 3 hours of Structured Learning. Pro-Demnity will provide the necessary certificate of attendance to attendees at the event. .
Cost: There is no charge for the event.
Registration: In order to assist with arrangements, please confirm your attendance as soon as possible with:
