My staffing company was asked to supply welders to the HSV build project. My partner and I were to fly to the Louisiana shipyard to discuss the scheduling of the welders they would need. They sent a contract to us, though, that would have relieved the US govt and the shipyard from any worker's comp obligations and immunity to any liability (which transferred all liability to us, the labor suppliers). This meant that if anything happened that caused any damage to an HSV, now or forever, that oculd be traced back to work done by any of the workers supplied by me, then my company would be held liable for any repurcussion. I shopped a GL policy specific to that project and couldn't even get anybody to quote the policy for me (we're a small, specialized staffing operation). I stopped short of Lloyd's of London and gave up.

Could have still made the trip to see the operation, but couldn't justify the time away. Probably can still go anytime I want, and it would be extremely cool.
