Location that is different from an insured's home or place of business. Under the standard homeowners insurance policy, the property of the insured is covered off premises; for example, if it is stolen from an airport. Likewise, an employer is liable for physical injury and property damage caused by an employee or by equipment, even if it does not occur at the place of business. If a truck spills chemicals on the highway or at another business site, or if a salesperson injures a client on a sales call, the employer is responsible. Business liability policies insure against such risks.
