As the clocks go forward this weekend, there’s a few things you should be aware of.
Spring is the most popular time to see the start of renovations and building work – so how do you protect contractors working at your business?
The lack of control of contractors working at your premises can lead to accidents and injuries to both the contractors and your employees.
Failing to control contractors has also resulted in damage to premises, machinery and equipment and loss of business as well as civil claims for compensation and prosecutions of clients who didn’t fully appreciate the extent of their duties in relation to their contractors.
As a contractor, your clients rely on you as a safe pair of hands. You’re an expert in your field and you’re often trusted to make significant contributions to your clients’ business.
We have experience of insuring contractors like yourself. And because of this we know, despite your best efforts, that mistakes can happen – especially when you’re working to meet deadlines. You may be working for your clients for just a short time, but what if you lost a laptop containing confidential information about your client’s customers?
Mistakes like this could result in an unhappy client bringing a claim against you for negligence.
Our professional indemnity insurance policy is designed for small businesses and can protect contractors against the cost of settling or defending a client’s claim that there is a problem with the work you have done for them. Professional indemnity insurance can give you peace of mind, and ensures that you present a professional and trustworthy image in front of your clients.
