Explanation:
I have to disagree for the previous answer. Verkehrsichrungspflicht is the "obligation or duty to maintain safety", thus allowing other parties to travel safely through a construction site or an area where construction work is being performed. I have come across this in numerous projects. Good luck!

Explanation:
Versicherungspflicht would mean obligation to carry insurance, but
Verkehrssicherungspflicht is not an
insurance, but i.e. Verkehrswert is
what a property is worth on the market
vs. Feuerkassenwert. Verkehrssicherungsstellung is a law
in Germany (see Schoenfelder, Wirtschaftsrecht)-- I found the definition of Verkehrssicherungspflicht:
Wer auf einem seiner verfuegungsgewalt unterliegendem Grundstueck oeffentlichen Verkehr eroeffnet oder duldet, ist dafuer verantwortlich, dass die erforderlichen Schutzvorkehrungen, insbes. vor Gefahrenquellen, getroffen werden. Die Nichterfuellung ist unerlaubte Handlung un verpflichtet zum Schadenersatz. Basically what it says is, that, let's say, you rent commercial
space, where people go in and out, you
are obliged to keep it safe and abide
by all city, fire department etc. regulations. For any violations you are
subject to a damage claim. I guess and
to insure yourself from such damage claims you would take some sort of liability insurance.

legal duty to maintain safety / liability for premises


Explanation:
I agree with Leipzig - it's not a "Versicherungspflicht" (although the landlord will probably need to carry some sort of liability insurance for this), but the landlord's
duty to maintain safety (for public use)
or his
liability for [the] premises.

Both the above terms for Verkehrssicherungspflicht can be found in Romain, WB der Rechts- und Wirtschaftssprache
