Do I need Bricklayers’ Insurance?

Yes, you should get bricklayers’ insurance, not only to protect yourself, but to also protect everyone else around you.

We’d recommend to any bricklayer that they get public liability insurance as a must-have policy to start, before they get other products such as tools cover, employers’ liability insurance, personal accident insurance, or legal expenses insurance so they can truly protect all aspects of their bricklaying business.

Having the right insurance in place is crucial if you’re a bricklayer. Without it, you could be vulnerable to claims made against you, the legal fees that come with defending your business, and accidents or errors that could be financially detrimental and keep your business, out of business. Mitigating risks that come your way is important for any bricklaying business, and that’s the purpose of bricklayers’ insurance.

Public Liability Insurance for bricklayers – how does it work?

Public liability insurance is certainly one of the most, if not the most, important policy for bricklayers. It provides bricklaying businesses financial protection in case they’re found to be legally liable for causing an accidental injury to a third party or damage to their property during the course of their work.

Public Liability Insurance may also be a legal requirement for bricklayers or construction businesses before they can undertake certain types of projects or obtain licenses and permits. Even when not legally required, it's often considered essential for protecting the business from potentially ruinous legal claims, and the legal costs that follow.

Ultimately, because of how often bricklayers, and many other tradesmen, engage with third parties as part of their work, having public liability cover is often viewed as a standard practice in the industry.
