. A building construction site is one of the most challenging, ever changing, a giant jigsaw puzzle that requires skill, precision and cooperation for it all to come together. Till that happens, till that last piece is put in place, everything is seemingly up in the air. Anything can go wrong and no matter how careful you are, things can and does go awry. A brick may fall on a parked vehicle or worse, a person, near the site. A laborer may fall from a scaffolding and require serious medical help, thieves may strike and steal precious materials and machinery- the number of possibilities is truly endless.Protection from these scary scenarios comes from one power source - builders insurance. Every country has its own building policies and the UK is no exception. There are many advantages of getting builders insurance - such as the ones offered by Tradesman Saver - and we don’t just mean for the builder. It helps the landowner and the laborer too. Here’s how. If you’re getting a building built on your property, to own, use or sell, your responsibility increases manifold. The work force is the most important and the most worrisome factor is injury to workmen. Forget the loss of work days, the loss of livelihood to the worker and his/her family is worse. Profits can dip, life can also be lost or irrevocably changed. When you have liability cover, medical expenses and other costs are handled by the insurance company. This can take a huge weight off your shoulders and allow you peace of mind to look at the business at hand - construction. This kind of insurance is called employer’s liability and is vital. Don’t think of it as an optional cover that can be ignored. It cannot be and you’ll be grateful for it, whenever the need arises. Some insurance agencies like Tradesman Saver offer a more than generous 10 million pound cover.Builders public liability insurance is essential in the sometimes accident-prone world of the construction site. It takes care of you and your business in such situations and it’s great because you don’t have to pay for someone else’s mistake. A distracted worker trips over a hammer and goes sprawling on the pavement. Or workers are hurt because of split second neglect. Insurance takes care of all this. Being assured that the injured is getting good treatment and care and is also on the way to a productive life soon, is a great feeling. For the laborer, there is the security of a safe building site. He or she knows that their work and commitment is rewarded with an assurance from the employer or landowner too. More than that, the fact that in the case of an accident, their family will not face any struggle when they are out of commission is a big reassurance. Insurance companies sometimes hold the employee’s hand till recovery and after. Comfort and compensation, all in one.
