Accepting responsibility for one’s work is a central tenet of being a professional — in practical application this means taking financial responsibility should there be an error or omission in the work product. The most cost effective way to manage this personal liability is with insurance. With this in mind, the member provincial professional organizations of Canada’s Professional Chemists (CPC) have obtained cost effective Errors & Omissions insurance for individual professional chemists in Canada. While those professional chemists who regularly provide consulting services are eligible for preferred group rates, those who provide occasional ‘over the fence’ advice or academic chemists who undertake occasional consulting and are not indemnified by their institutions may also be interested. The insurance is provided by Encon, one of Canada’s largest providers of professional liability insurance, and adminstered by the Moore-McLean Insurance Group. For more information, contact your provincial Professional Chemist organization or the CPC.
