What is glaziers’ insurance?

Glaziers’ insurance is a type of policy that covers glaziers for the things they care about most. Every business is different so they can require different things from their insurance.

Working with glass of course carries its dangers.  Accidents involving glass not only have the capacity for inflicting injury to you, but also your employees, clients, and members of the public. This can ultimately cost your business considerable sums in the compensation you are ordered to pay if and when things go wrong.

Glaziers' insurance is designed to reduce the financial impact of those claims, together with the legal costs involved in defending allegations of your liability.

At, we pride ourselves in helping you find the insurance policy that best suits your business requirements. We present you with different policies so you can make an informed decision that best suits your business needs. With your insurance in place, you can focus on your business with the knowledge that if the worst were to happen, then you’re covered.

What does glaziers’ insurance include?

Glaziers’ insurance comes with public liability insurance as standard.  Public liability insurance covers your business for third party injuries and property damage. As an example, if your tools or glass falls onto a person or their property, they can sue you for compensation. Public liability insurance 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. Depending on the policy you choose, you can claim up to £10 million for legal fees and any financial awards made to the claimant.

This means if the worst were to happen and someone became injured or property was damaged, your public liability insurance could give you the peace of mind knowing that you’re covered against potentially huge bills.

Do I need glaziers’ insurance?

If you employ anyone else to help run your glazing business, you have to arrange employers’ liability insurance. The law requires you have a policy in place that meets a minimum of £5 million of indemnity. This is to protect your business from claims if an employee is injured or made ill due to the direct impact of their work.

The most common insurance tradesmen choose to get is public liability insurance, due to its third party injury and property damage cover. This cover allows people to focus on running their business without the need to worry about large financial claims.

Contractors’ all risk is another option that is often considered as it covers the tools of your trade, the plant and equipment you may be using on site, and the materials required to get the job done. We also have van insurance, goods in transit and professional indemnity available to purchase in one simple and easy place.

At, we want to help you find the best policies and cover that best suit your business needs.
