Gas engineer insurance is a vital part of your business operations, both in terms of general compliance and protecting your business in the event something goes wrong.

What does gas engineer insurance cover?

You may find different insurers offer slightly different policies. However, the core set of gas engineer insurance products will usually include:

  • public liability insurance
  • product liability insurance
  • employers’ liability insurance
  • professional indemnity insurance

There are other options that may be included, such as:

  • tools and van cover
  • personal accident insurance
  • insurance for commercial premises

This is not an exhaustive list. You should always check first to see what is included in any quote you receive.

If you employ anyone (even on a part-time basis, and possibly some contractors), you are legally required to have employers’ liability insurance.

Depending on the project, you may also find that you are contractually required to have public liability, product liability, and professional indemnity insurance.

Even if you are not contractually or legally required to have insurance, it is highly recommended that you consider your business’ insurance requirements. Without it, your business could be at risk.

  • The nature of the work you do and the size and value of the projects you undertake
  • The type of machinery or equipment you work with
