Building your business insurance policy
You may need a range of covers for groundworkers included in your policy. These core covers should help you get started:
Public liability insurance – covers the cost of a claim if one of your clients or member of the public is injured or killed, or if their property is damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers a minimum of £1 million in cover, or up to £10 million for businesses operating public sector contracts.

Employers’ liability insurance – if you have employees or hire contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you are required by law to take out employers’ liability cover. It will pay the cost of a claim from an employee who has been injured at work, or who has become seriously ill as a result of working for you.
