What insurance do mechanical engineers need?

The insurance you buy depends on your business and the risks you want to cover, but these are some of the insurance types worth considering:

Professional indemnity insurance can cover your mechanical engineering business if you’re negligent or make a mistake in your work that causes your client to lose money. For example if a fault in one of your designs means a mechanical system doesn’t work properly, your client could claim compensation from you. Your professional indemnity insurance could step in to cover the cost.

Public liability insurance protects you against compensation claims made by a member of the public for injury or damage to their property. This includes claims made by a client, a supplier, or a passerby who comes into contact with your business.

Employers’ liability insurance is likely to be a legal requirement if your business employs any staff. It can pay compensation claims if a member of staff sues you for injury or illness that’s been caused by their work.

Business equipment insurance can pay to repair or replace your equipment if it’s lost, damaged or stolen. Try to accurately estimate the cost of replacing all of your business equipment so that you’re fully covered if you come to make a claim.

Other covers you can choose to add to your mechanical engineering insurance policy include business buildings insurance, business contents insurance and business legal protection insurance.
