What is tree surgeons' insurance?

Policies for tree surgeons can cover and mitigate many of the risks of the job that can affect the professionals undertaking them and individuals that can be hurt by machinery of the work taking place. Any package will include coverage that protects you and your employees from physical injury, makes sure that the public is fully insured, and that damage to property is fully addressed.

Any job that involves working at height or operating heavy machinery requires coverage that matches the degree of risk. This can involve branches causing injury, calls from misplaced footing, and property damage from vehicles or as a result of pruning. Finding the right insurance policy for your business will allow you to continue operating safely with peace of mind, knowing that your company is protected even in the event of a worst-case scenario.

What does tree surgeons' insurance cover?

Public and Professional liability insurance: Taking the time to ensure that the correct protections are in place will allow you to continue to operate when you need it most. Securing quality public liability insurance will help deal with potential injury to the public caused by falling limbs, heavy equipment, and the day-to-day work of the job. If an error of judgement is made or an accident causes financial loss to a client, professional liability insurance can make sure that the issue is addressed, and your reputation maintained.

Employer’s liability insurance: Working as a tree surgeon is a physically demanding job and injury can leave your employees unable to carry out their duties for extended periods of time or worse. Securing correct liability insurance can help cover claims against the business and avoid hefty government fines for those operating without coverage.
