Types of insurance cover your infrastructure business may require

Insurance programmes for infrastructure businesses would typically include a combination of the following cover:

  • Public liability insurance: This will provide you with the protection you need in the event of your business activities either killing or injuring a third-party (non-employee) or damages their property.
  • Contractors All Risk (CAR) insurance: CAR Insurance will provide your company with protection against any damage that occurs to site materials and works that you have been contracted to undertake.
  • Employers’ liability insurance: This is a compulsory type of insurance for employers, regardless of whether the member of staff is permanent, temporary, volunteer, contractor or freelancer. The minimum level of protection is £5m, which will cover the cost of compensation claims if staff get injured or fall ill as a result of carrying out their required duties.
  • Professional indemnity insurance: Provides cover against negligent advice or if your work causes a problem for your client (i.e. a construction project is cancelled or delayed). If your business offers advice to clients or is responsible for designs, this type of insurance should be considered.
  • Business assets and equipment insurance: Provides cover for the assets that your business needs to operate, including furniture and computers.
  • Product liability insurance: Provides cover is a product that you supplied, manufactured, adapted or imported has caused damage or injury to people or property.

These are just examples of some of the types of infrastructure insurance policies that we look after at HISL Brokers Limited
