The insurance cover you typically need includes public liability and professional indemnity – both of which are included as standard (amongst other cover features) in our electrical contractors liability insurance product. You may also need employers liability which is compulsory for most businesses that employ one or more people.

For more information, read our quick guide to insurance (https://www.niceic-and-elecsa-insurance.com/news-and-information/a-quick-guide-to-insurance/) The cost of electrical contractor insurance cover depends on the nature of your contracting business – its size, claims history, the type of work you undertake and the level of risk that comes with it. That means there is no single average cost of electrical contractor insurance. At NICEIC Insurance, we have worked with insurers to develop a comprehensive, flexible, and affordable electrical contractors insurance solution.

There is no legal requirement for electricians to have professional indemnity insurance. However, if you offer clients advice or consultancy as part of your work, this is a cover worth considering since it is there to help defend claims made against you alleging errors and mistakes in your professional advice or in your work. In that sense, it offers additional cover over and above public liability insurance, which responds to injury or property damage only. The insurance covers you need as an electrical contractor depends on your business's nature – its size, whether you employ people and the kinds of work you carry out – and on your attitude to risk. Employers liability insurance is a legal requirement if you employ people – even temporarily or unpaid. Meanwhile, you may want to consider public liability insurance to cover legal fees and compensation if a client or member of the public alleges injury or property damage as a result of your work, as well as cover for your tools, vehicles and premises. Similarly, income protection insurance can step in to replace lost income if you are unable to work through illness or injury and may be a sensible precaution. At NICEIC Insurance, we have worked with insurers to develop contractors insurance solutions that are comprehensive, flexible and affordable – to make it easier for you to find the right cover at the right price.
