This is a guest about plumbers insurance, a required part of the plumbing business.
Each business demands its own specialised insurance package tailored to meet specific needs, none more so than the plumbing business. A plumber is a saviour in times of crisis due to the extent of the damage that can be caused by faulty plumbing. Conversely, this also represents a major risk to the plumber in the sense that they must not be found negligent through faulty work and thus held responsible for huge costs.
The insurance that covers the plumber in this scenario is best described as Public Liability Insurance and this should be an integral part of any Plumbers Insurance policy.
Public Liability Insurance covers the business owner against the damages they might incur from faulty practice and any personal injury that may arise from the businesses day-to-day activities. Because plumbers are working inside people’s property, they have a duty to maintain a standard of practice which doesn’t damage the premises on which they are working. Professional Indemnity Insurance is closely related to this aspect of Plumbers Insurance but is generally more keenly associated with the world of professional advice.
A good Plumbers Insurance policy will take all these technicalities into account and offer you the best of all covers in order to prevent costly liability charges that could be ruinous to your business. Faulty or substandard work could result in water damage or injury where costs can be frightening.
A tailored Plumbers Insurance policy can also cover you from a lot more than just public liability. It can cover tools, hired equipment and personal accident cover. If your plumbing or heating business employs workers, it can include employer liability cover which is a legal requirement.
Plumbing is a speciality trade that requires a speciality insurance policy and well tailored Plumbers Insurance is a necessity. Business insurance is a broad title and one business’ needs differ drastically from the next ones.
