Public liability insurance for glaziers
Public liability insurance is considered essential by many glaziers. It protects you if your work causes injury to a customer or member of the public, or results in damage to their property. For example, a customer may fall over a toolbox while you are working at their home, suffering injuries as a result. Or you might accidentally gouge the surrounding plasterwork as your fitting a window at a client’s property, which may need to be repaired and repainted as a result.
In cases such as these, you could face significant compensation claims and legal bills. Public liability insurance for glaziers is there to ensure that you don’t have to cover these expenses out of your own pocket.
Do I need glaziers’ insurance?
All glaziers may need certain types of insurance. No matter how careful you are when you’re fitting and removing windows, you can’t rule out the possibility of an accident occurring. If it does, you don’t want to be left facing the financial fallout. For example, if a windowpane you’re installing falls from a height and causes damage to a customer’s car, would you be able to cover the costs of repairing the damage to the vehicle? Or if a client or member of the public trips over equipment you leave out and suffers a serious injury, could your finances deal with a legal claim? Unless you would be able to absorb expenses like these, it’s important to have the appropriate glaziers’ insurance in place.
You will also need to think about your tools. As a glazier, you couldn’t work without the specialist equipment you rely on to do your job. If this was stolen, lost or damaged, you could be left facing significant bills to replace or repair it. In addition, if you have employees, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance.
