Public liability insurance for bricklayers
At the centre of a bricklayer's insurance policy will normally be public liability insurance, it's often seen as a vital cover for bricklayers and most other trades, as it can protect you if someone is injured or their property is damaged due to your business. For example, a member of the public trips over some cement bags you left on the floor and injures themselves, they may sue you for compensation, or you knock a loose brick off a wall onto someone's head and they make a claim against you for any injuries suffered.
Public liability cover can normally be set between £1 million and £5 million for bricklayers and other tradesmen, to protect you against any costs incurred.
Employer's liability insurance for bricklayers
Employer's liability insurance is a legal requirement if your bricklaying business has employees. It covers claims made against you by an employee or former employee for injury or illness caused by their employment.
Contractors All Risks
Contractors All Risks insurance is an optional cover that builders often buy in addition to their public liability policy. The key feature of a Contractors All Risks policy is that it insures your tools and materials against loss, theft, and damage.
As a bricklayer, it is likely that you have some pretty expensive tools and materials. These can be pricey and time-consuming to replace. That’s why many bricklayers choose to include Contractor’s All Risks cover. The policy can include cover for:
- Own plant, tools, machinery, and equipment.
- Hired-in plant, tools, machinery, and equipment.
- Employee's tools and effects.
