Scaffolding & Roofing Insurance

Liability insurance giving you peace of mind

 

As a scaffolder or roofer, you will know the number of dangers that come as part and parcel of the job. There are a huge number of unique risks that you could face, including scaffold collapse, falls from height, inadequate safety equipment and bad weather.

These risks create a need for a liability insurance policy that protects you if something goes wrong – including cover for working at height.

While we hope you never have to experience a mishap on site, if one does occur, you could find yourself facing litigation. This may not only stop operations, but could also cost you a significant amount, potentially bankrupting you in the process. Ensure that you are covered for any instances such as these by having suitable roofing insurance and scaffold insurance.

 

What is roofing and scaffolding insurance?

Roofing and scaffolding insurance ensures that you or your business has the correct protection in the event that any accidents happen at work, which could include a fall from height or the collapse of the building you are working on.

Once you have the right insurance, you will not have to worry about any financial consequences resulting from roof or scaffold-related accidents.
