On May 30th, 2018 Governor Hickenlooper signed Senate Bill 18-062, better known as the “Snow Removal Service Liability Act” into law. This new statute is directed at entities both providing services under a snow/ice removal contract, as well as those that receive the services.
In sum, this Act abolishes agreements or clauses in a snow/ice removal contract that requires indemnity, hold harmless and defense requirements by the service provider or service receiver’s own acts or omissions. No longer can a service provider or service recipient transfer responsibility for their own acts or omissions to the other party.
