Gas Fitters' Insurance FAQs

How does Gas fitters’ Insurance or Heating Engineers’ Insurance differ from Gas Engineer Insurance?

Gas fitter insurance or heating engineer insurance differs from gas engineer insurance in that these policies provide for different professions.

Gas fitters’ insurance cover specifically focuses on covering individuals or businesses that specialise in the installation of gas systems, which may include coverage for liability arising from faulty installation work or injuries resulting from improperly installed gas systems.

Heating engineers' insurance, on the other hand, is similar to gas engineer insurance but may have a broader scope, encompassing not only work related to gas systems but also other heating systems such as boilers, radiators, and central heating systems. Heating engineer insurance may include coverage for liability related to installation, maintenance, repair, and servicing of heating systems.

Do gas engineers need Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Yes, gas engineers often need professional indemnity insurance (PII). Professional indemnity cover is designed to protect professionals, including gas engineers, against claims of negligence, errors, or omissions arising from their professional services.

For gas engineers, PII can be crucial because they provide services that involve potential risks to property and safety. If you make a mistake or oversight in their work, such as incorrect installation or faulty repairs, it could result in property damage, injuries, or even fatalities. Professional indemnity policies helps cover the costs associated with legal defence, settlements, or compensation claims resulting from such incidents.

Do gas engineers need Employers' Liability Insurance?

Gas engineers will need employers’ liability cover if they have employees working for them. This policy can provide cover for claims made by employees who suffer injuries or illnesses as a result of their work. It helps protect both the employees and the employer by providing financial support for legal costs and compensation payments in the event of workplace accidents or injuries.
