Are there gaps in your insurance?

One of the requirements of being a HETAS registrant is that your business insurance meets the minimum levels of cover for your industry. This means that you must have a minimum of £2 million public liability cover in your policy. HETAS Insurance Services has worked closely with insurers to ensure that the cover we offer meets those requirements.

However, when it comes to insurance, one size does not fit all, and depending on the work you carry out and how your business is set up, there may be additional covers that you need.

Employers Liability

Whether you employ one apprentice, or a team of experienced colleagues, employers liability insurance is essential for your business. This cover also applies to temporary employees or contractors who you may employ. Employers liability cover is designed to offer protection should any employee submit a claim for compensation after sustaining an injury or illness as a result of their work for your business.

Cyber liability insurance

In our previous blog we spoke about the increasing threat of cyber security and the potential impact this could have on small business owners. We mentioned some simple precautions you can take to protect your business from cyber-crime, but for extra protection you may want to consider cyber insurance. This cover could protect you against financial losses as a result of cyber-crime.

Personal accident cover

If you suffer an injury at work which prevents you from working, personal accident cover provides 24-hour protection and a weekly benefit for up to 52 weeks, to cover things such as your loss in earnings or medical bills.

Contract works insurance

Contract works insurance provides cover for your equipment onsite, as well as any damage caused to your work that is underway. If you carry out contractual work for clients, contract works insurance may be a requirement of it. Cover may help to pay for work that you have to re-do or repair should it be damaged by an insured event such as fire or flood.

Cover for tools, tech and stock
