Defense Base Act Insurance “DBA Insurance” is provided to employers to protect against injury incurred by an employee arising out of the course of employment and is a legal requirement for all contractors and subcontractors working on US military bases or public works outside of the US.
If you operate a contract with the US military, or are involved with civil or humanitarian contracts with US Government departments outside the US, you are legally obliged to cover your workers with DBA Insurance. Failure to do so can lead to loss of contracts and leave you open to legal action in the US Federal courts. If an employee or contractor were injured or killed without DBA Insurance in place, your organization could be directly liable for large compensation costs.
