In many sub-contracts the sub-contractor is required to indemnify the contractor against losses which the contractor may suffer and which arise out of the sub-contract work1. An indemnity clause in the sub-contract has to be construed separately from any indemnity provisions in the main contract. The sub-contractor can be required to indemnify the contractor for loss caused partly or wholly by the fault of the contractor, but only if: (1) this is expressly stated in the indemnity clause; or (2) the meaning of the words in the indemnity clause is wide enough to provide for loss caused by negligence
