Warehouses have the potential for very unique pollution exposures due to the size of the facilities and the amount of goods typically stored on-site at any given time. From an insured’s daily operations, to the possibility of a natural disaster triggering a pollution event, it is crucial that warehouse owners and operators have adequate coverage.

Common risks associated with warehouse facilities may include:

  • Storage – The overall storage of goods which may be considered a contaminant. If the containers that hold these substances leak or spill, this could cause an environmental loss.
  • Operations – The risk of an environmental claim as a result of transporting, loading, or unloading goods on the warehouse premises.
  • Waste – Spills or leaks from drums, old containers, refuse dumpsters, or other types of waste found outside the facility.
  • Fires, Floods, and Other Natural Disasters – Contamination caused by the contents stored at a warehouse facility catching on fire, or being ruined in a flood, hurricane, or other uncontrollable event.
