    CARPENTERS COVERAGE CONSIDERATIONS

    A Public Liability and Products Liability policy is an absolute must for any Carpenter or Chippy. The nature of the work, tools involved and worksites attended does expose Carpenters to claims of potential property damage or even worse, personal injury for which they could be deemed negligent.

    In addition to a Public and Products Liability policy there a number of other Insurances a Carpenter could consider including a Tools of Trade Insurance Policy to cover items whilst away from the Business premises, in a locked vehicle or onsite overnight. A Commercial Motor Vehicle Insurance Policy is relevant along with personal accident and illness covers to help protect income in the case of an injury.
