The Dangers You Face

Modern piling rigs can weigh as much as 200 tonnes and have a high centre of gravity. The ‘leader’ part of a rig can be up to 30 metres high, thus the high centre of gravity, high static weight, and the forces exerted while rigs operate or move mean that the ground conditions beneath such rigs is a critical safety issue. Each year, piling rigs topple causing significant property damage and potential business interruption claims. This is usually due to inadequately prepared or maintained site surfaces.

We realise that this is one of many tens of factors that you have to consider in order to undertake your business successfully. We all know that accidents happen,
Lets get peace of mind that your are covered correctly and competitively going forward.

When you’re putting together your trade or construction insurance policy, your core cover is going to be public liability insurance. It covers you if anyone claims compensation from your business because they’ve been injured or their property’s been damaged.

For example if you leave your tools out while you’re working at a customer’s house and they trip over them and suffer an injury, or if you’re working on site and accidentally drop a brick that damages a car parked below, you could face a compensation claim. In these scenarios your public liability insurance could pay the legal fees and compensation costs, up to the limit of your policy. We offer up to £10 million of cover.
