About this group
For any independent worker, contractor or business owner, both public liability and personal accident cover are extremely important to consider. As a Carpenter or Joiner, you have to manage a range of hazards, from powerful cutting machinery to wood dust and splinters. The work can be risky and even the most experienced and skilled professionals can make mistakes or be injured on the jobs.
Public Liability Insurance covers against compensation claims from the public, property owners or visitors to your premises. Last year the average public liability claim to AXA Business Insurance for injury was £12,000 and for property damage was £3,700. When you take out a policy through our group, you get to choose from a variety of cover levels, so that you can tailor the policy to your needs.
Personal Accident Cover gives you peace of mind if you are injured at work, including the permanent loss of use of limbs, sight, hearing and other injuries. This covers you for 24 hours both at work and during leisure time.
Employers’ Liability Insurance is a legal requirement if you own a business that employs anyone including sub-contractors or apprentices. If you’re not covered for at least £5 million employers’ liability, fines can be as much as £2,500 a day.
Tools Cover protects against accidental damage or theft of tools. AXA Business Insurance report their average tools insurance claim is £1,150 and nearly 40% of Carpenters buying business insurance from them purchase tools cover.
