    TRADES INSURANCE

    OUR EXPERIENCE WITH TRADES INSURANCE

    As a tradesman you have likely spent years refining your craft. Overtime you develop smarter processes and have an understanding for quality materials. Not every situation calls for top of the line materials however there are times where these are the best option. You undoubtably have an understanding that cheapest is not always the best and a similar approach could be applied to your Public Liability Insurance. Atlantic Insurance has been accommodating the varied Insurance needs of trades businesses for 25 years. These trades range from sole traders in domestic environments right through to national builders and even industrial landscapers and rail maintenance entities. As you would expect the Insurance needs of each are unique and depend on a range of factors which are best understood through correspondence with experienced Client Managers, not necessarily via an online quote forum. Whilst this may save time it is not necessarily the risk analysis you and your business need.

    TRADES RISK – OUR OBSERVATIONS

    You not only have an obligation or duty of care to those you work on behalf of as a professional Tradesperson or entity, this now extends to providing a safe working environment for those you employ or even contract. In recent years we have seen a surge in recoveries being made by Work Cover authorities against employees on the basis that you have contributed to incidents of personal injury.

    CURRENT CLAIMS LANDSCAPE

    Our experience in assisting to manage Trades risks for the past 25 years is extensive and during that time there would not be many claims scenarios that we haven’t seen first hand.

    Your Public Liability Insurance Policy exists to protect you and your business in situations where a third party suffers a personal injury or property damage as a result of you or your Businesses negligence. Incidents involving property damage can be straightforward to quantify. For example the ladder that fell over and struck a vehicle, it is the cost to repair the vehicle that forms the basis for the claim. The same would apply to the screen you damaged during the installation of the TV, it is the cost of the repair or to replace the TV.

    Unfortunately it is the claims involving personal injury that are much more difficult to quantify. We have seen the passer-by get struck by falling objects, trip over and fall into open pits or slip on wet surfaces. No two incidents will be the same nor will the cost. Aspects of pain and suffering, loss of lifestyle, trauma, loss of income or future earnings mental anguish can be encountered in these situations.

    There are policies that can help protect you and your Business should such as situation arise which further highlights the need to get the right advice to ensure your Insurance program meets your unique Insurance needs. Contact us today to discuss your requirements.
