What Is Tradesman Insurance?
Tradesman insurance provides specialist cover for sole traders and businesses in the building and construction industry. Policies are available for over 100 different trades providing public liability protection for legal costs and any associated compensation payments should you, or one of your employees, cause damage to property, or injury to a third party in connection with your business.
Tradesman packages can also be extended to cover all of your specific requirements such as employers liability for injury to employees or sub-contractors, and loss or damage to tools or equipment.
Do I Need Tradesman Insurance?
If you have any employees you are required by law to purchase employers liability insurance or you can face a fine of up to £2,500 per day. Whilst tradesman public liability cover is not compulsory it should be regarded as essential for any manual trade, without it you will be personally liable for any accidents or others losses which may occur, putting your home or other assets at risk.
If you sub-contract to a larger firm it is highly likely that you will be asked to provide proof of cover prior to commencement of any work or when tendering for a job. If cover is already in place it makes the whole process much smoother.
