Comprehensive Cover For You & Your Team

Running a construction business is no easy feat. Whether you run a small-sized company or a large-scale construction firm, every day is a rush to get everything done. Trying to juggle all the admin tasks, paperwork and invoices, while simultaneously having to manage a team of workers means you’re always up against it to keep work moving on schedule. And, even when work has finished for the day, your job isn’t over – as soon as you get in the door, it’s back to work before you’ve even had the chance to pour yourself a cup of tea. The very last thing you want to worry about at the end of it all is a compensation claim shutting your business down.

What insurance do you need if you work in construction?

 

Construction workers constantly battle with high-risk situations every day on the job, so ensuring your business is safeguarded from potential claims is an absolute must. While public liability insurance is key for those working in construction, contractor’s all risks insurance is actually one of the most important covers for your line of work. Contractor’s all risks insurance includes a range of benefits, from covering all ongoing work on site to covering any hired-in plant or machinery. It could come in great help in situations where:

  • A fire in the property below destroys the extension you’re building
  • Your equipment is stolen from the construction site

As well as contractor’s all risks insurance, you should also consider employer’s liability insurance too if you work in construction. Employer’s liability insurance is a legal requirement if you employ staff, and it offers protection from your employees making a compensation claim against you for injury. Even if you only work with subcontractors, you may still need employer’s liability insurance, as it is still required for labour-only subcontractors who work under your supervision and with your tools, materials and equipment. For bona fide subcontractors, the rules are slightly different as they aren’t supervised or directed by you, so you won’t need employer’s liability for these types of subcontractors – however, you should still ensure they have their own current cover in place for your business’ protection.

Construction Accidents Can Happen

Here is an example of a situation where your insurance could help you out of a tight jam:

Falling Hoarding

On a windy day, a piece of incorrectly fixed hoarding gets blown down on the construction site you’re running. It hits a nearby pedestrian and they suffer a concussion. They decide to launch a compensation claim against you. This is where your public liability insurance would come into play – your insurer would pay out the compensation claim and the legal expenses for you, so you can focus on keeping work on the site running smoothly.
