Building your scaffolders business insurance policy

Our quote form helps you to choose the right covers for your business and build them into a policy tailored to your requirements.

These core insurance covers should help you get started:

Public liability insurance – a must for scaffolders, it will cover the cost of a claim if a customer 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, up to £10 million for businesses operating public sector contracts.

Read our article: Why is public liability important?

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.
