Why do you need electricians' insurance cover?

An electrician’s job comes with its own risks and dangers. Whether it’s a live wire, an exposed socket, or tripping over cables, there are plenty of hazards you, a customer, or a member of the public need to be mindful of, and each could have severe consequences. General insurance won’t work for you. You need insurance that better reflects the risks you face on a daily basis. You want peace of mind should the worst happen.

Electricians' public liability insurance

Public liability insurance for electrical contractors is at the core of our electrician's insurance. This will provide you with protection from claims that arise from damage to a property or injury to a third party. For example, a customer or a member of the public may claim against you for a whole host of reasons – electrocuted from a faulty switch or damage to a neighbour's vehicle. Our standard electrician's liability insurance also includes professional indemnity insurance and cover for financial loss. Plus, you have the option to pay in monthly instalments on Direct Debit.
