What is bricklayers’ insurance?

Bricklayers’ insurance allows you to pick the policies that best suit your business. From public liability to contractors all risk, you’re able to cover the elements of your work you care about most.

If you are a bricklayer, you are almost by definition going to be working on a building site. Accidents can happen, some of which can happen to you, your employees and even to members of the public. Bricklayers' insurance is designed to protect you from the financial fallout from such incidents and accidents.

Not every bricklayer has the same work risks, so any insurance you arrange needs to meet the requirements of your particular business. With our knowledge, we can help you find the policy that best suits you at a competitive rate.

What does bricklayers’ insurance include?

Bricklayers’ insurance can include different key areas of protection for your business depending on your business needs.

Contractors all risk insurance can be included with your policy. This allows you to protect the tools of your trade, the plant and equipment you may be using on site, and the materials required to get the job done. These can be extremely costly to your business so protecting yourself can help save a lot of money if something goes wrong.

Public liability insurance can cover your business for third party injury and property damage, for example if your tools fall onto a person or their car, they can sue you for compensation. Public liability can help protect you from financial costs such as compensation and legal fees. With £1 million of liability cover as standard, you can feel comfortable knowing you are protected.

Do I need bricklayers’ insurance?

There is a legal requirement to have employees’ liability insurance if your business has any employees.  You can face strict fines if you don’t cover your business with a policy.

You have a duty of care to protect your employees.  This care establishes that an individual must take responsibility to prevent injury to an employee. If an employee is injured at work or contracts an illness or medical condition as a result of their job, the employer may be ordered to pay compensation for a breach of the common law duty of care owed to that employee.

Public liability insurance is designed to cover your business if a claim is made against you for injury to people, or damage to third party property. Public liability insurance isn’t a legal requirement but can step in by covering the costs (up to £10 million) for legal fees and any financial awards made to the claimant.

This type of policy is common for the industry you work in and protects lots of businesses from different types of claims.
