Tradesman Saver’s Public Liability Cover For Sign Erectors

Our standard cover is:

  • £1 million cover for public and products liability (with an option to increase to £2 million or £5 million)
  • £10,000 cover for any financial loss (£50K cover optional)
  • Worldwide liability cover for temporary work abroad for up to 14 days (excluding the USA and Canada)

Although working as a sign erector isn’t the most hazardous job in the world, it isn’t entirely risk-free either. For instance, somebody may trip over your tool box and hurt themselves, or you could accidentally damage someone’s property when putting up a sign in a tricky location. Such events could mean you being sued and result in hefty compensation costs, which could be disastrous or even terminal for your business.

Why public liability insurance is essential

Thankfully, public liability insurance is a lifesaver in these situations, ensuring your insurer is the one that pays out if you injure a customer or member of the public, or damage their property. You can purchase this as part of Tradesman Saver’s automatic package, which also covers you for financial loss, legal expenses, and more.

Why you need other covers too

Hurting others or damaging their property isn’t the only risk in your job though. For example, you could drop a sign while erecting it and hurt yourself, or pull a muscle while dismantling one. In these instances, personal accident insurance is critical, as it will cover the costs of you or your staff being unable to work because of injury. Speaking of members of staff, you will also need employer’s liability, as this protects your business should an employee claim against you for harm suffered while working. Other useful covers include tool insurance to quickly replace any stolen, damaged or lost tools and professional indemnity insurance to cover your company from any errors made on the job.
