Insurance for gas safety engineers – why it matters
When you’re dealing with gas appliances, there’s no room for error, but accidents can happen and even if they’re not your fault they could lead to damage and injuries that might land you in court. Your training and accreditations are there to protect your clients and their property, but as a professional gas or heating engineer, insurance is there to protect you and your employees. We’ll help you to put together an insurance policy that provides cover for the specific demands of your profession.
Why gas engineers need insurance
Accidents and injury
As a plumbing and heating engineer, you spend your days at other people’s houses and business premises. While you’re meticulous in everything you do, sometimes it’s the small things that can catch you out. A poorly placed tool box could lead to an injury, or you could accidentally get oil on an expensive cream carpet. Public liability claims can come in many forms, but if you end up facing one, we’ll be there to help cover the cost.
You may employ someone to help you a few days a week, or run your own business with a huge body of staff. Either way, if someone who works for you claims they’ve fallen ill or been injured because of their job, you could be held liable. Even if someone misinterprets advice, you could still have to defend yourself. If you find yourself facing legal action, we’ll be there to cover the costs.
Problems with data
In a physical trade, computers might feel like the least of your worries, but these days most businesses use the internet in some capacity, whether it’s processing payments, communicating with clients or dealing with invoices. You’re likely to hold data about your business and your clients and if it’s accidentally put in the wrong hands it could come at a cost, financially and to your reputation too.
