What cover does groundwork contractor insurance provide?
Groundworkers Public Liability Insurance
Groundwork Contractor Insurance will always contain a public liability cover. This protects you from a claim made against you by members of the public that they have suffered an injury or death or damage or loss of property as a consequence of your work.
Employers Liability Insurance for Groundworkers
If you have people working for you, even if only casual labour or contractors, you are required by law to take out employers liability insurance. It works in a similar way to Public Liability, in that it protects you in the event of a claim that someone (in this case a worker, rather than a member of the public) has suffered loss or injury as a result of their work for you.
