Scaffolding Insurance

Effective cover for contracting companies working within the construction sector.

If you own and run a scaffolding company, it is important to have the correct cover to help protect your business should anything happen.

As you are conducting your work in the public domain, it is essential that you have the correct scaffolders insurance which includes employers liability and public liability.

As most of your work will be on third party premises, it is important to have the correct cover to help protect you from injury claims from members of the public, damage to the property of members of the public and injuries to your employees.

It doesn’t take a lot for hiccups to happen in a fast-paced environment such as a construction site. A slip or trip or a slight lapse in concentration can happen to anyone, so having the right cover in place can really help your business should anything happen.

If you employ any staff at all, you are legally required to have employers’ liability insurance. SJL Insurance Services can build this into your policy.

Along with protecting your employees you also have a duty of care to have adequate cover to protect the public and their property against any injuries or accidents that could occur.
