Getting business insurance as an engineer


With so many factors to consider in an engineering project, things don’t always go to plan. If something goes wrong it can threaten a whole project until it’s put right, so engineering insurance offers protection against mistakes for you and your employees, giving you and your clients peace of mind. We’ll tailor your cover to the specific needs of your company and we’ll make sure you’re protected against legal costs, compensation and expenses.

Where business insurance for engineers can help


Putting mistakes right

A design error, a misunderstanding about specifications, even a typo or an omission from your project plan. Something really simple could quickly turn into an expensive and embarrassing mistake, especially if it’s carried out on site. We’ll cover the costs of putting it right and we’ll help you to defend yourself against claims for compensation.

Protecting your employees

Despite your best efforts, slips, trips and falls could put you or your employees out of action. Serious incidents and industrial illnesses can even spell the end of someone’s career. Employer liability insurance for engineering consultants covers the compensation and legal fees you may have to pay if a claim is brought against you by an employee for injury or disease arising from the work they do for you.

Dissatisfied clients

Despite your best efforts, it’s possible that your client may still be unhappy with the end result. Misunderstandings and mistakes in an engineering project may increase your client’s costs, so they could decide to make a claim against you. Whether it’s justified or not, you’ll still have to defend yourself and we’ll be there to help.
