What are some of the types of business insurance cover you should consider for your boiler making & fitter and turner activities?

Public Liability insurance for boiler makers and fitters and turners

Public liability is arguably the most essential insurance that any boiler maker can have. It is a smart way of protecting yourself and your business.

For a fitter and turner or boiler maker , given the hazardous nature of the work, there are a number of things that can go wrong. Backing your skills as a boilermaker or fitter and turner , you may think you will not make a mistake and don't really require a cover. But, irrespective of how professional and skilful you are or how much care you take while working, mistakes and accidents do happen.

Sometimes, an error can cause damage worth a few hundred dollars but if something serious happens and you don't have public liability insurance, it can destroy both your business and personal assets.

Types of business insurance requirements for boilermakers to consider :

  • Public Liability - may protect a boilermaker when products you have supplied, repaired or manufactured cause harm, injure someone or cause property damage. eg: someone gets burnt by hot sparks, trips over debris, materials or tools on the floor or you accidently damage a client's or their neighbours property.
  • General property insurance – may cover damage or loss to and business equipment such as tools, mobiles , computers , welding equipment , or stock such as steel.
  • Business insurance pack – you may be able to combine multiple covers in a specially designed policy for a small fitter and turner/boiler making business. Ask your SMART broker for details.
  • Marine cargo – cover if you receive or send goods such as a shipment of steel.
  • Professional Indemnity – if you provide professional advice or a fee.
  • Commercial motor – may cover any vehicle - car, van , light truck - that you own and use mainly for business.
  • Personal Accident and Sickness - to protect your personal income if you can't work for an extended period.
  • Life Insurance – to protect your family.
  • Tool Insurance - Good welding tools are expensive. Consider insuring them.
