Business Insurance For Pest Control Contractors

We fully understand the needs of organisations connected with the Pest Control industry.

There are difficulties generally with the placement of liability insurances and these are even more pronounced for organisations in the pest control industry, especially for those involved with the use of chemicals and firearms. As a result premiums can be increased considerably or in extreme cases, entirely uneconomical.

Design & Build Your Policy

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 some equipment 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.

What Insurance Does Your Business Need?

The insurance you need will depend on your specific type of business and the individual risks it faces, but these are popular covers for tradesmen:

  • Employers Liability: If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re usually required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.
  • As with any type of insurance, the cost of premiums may vary quite widely from one insurer to another. Here, our aim is to help you obtain the insurance cover you need at a competitive rate that represents good value for money.
  • The price of premiums is influenced by a number of factors, including:
  • The number of people you employ
  • The particular nature of your business
  • Your past insurance claims history

To comply with the law, employers’ liability insurance needs to cover:

  • Every permanent employee
  • Seasonal, casual and contract employees
  • Labour-only subcontractors
  • Trainees and employees who are on apprenticeships

It is important to note, however, that the law extends not only to those in full-time, paid employment, but also temporary staff, people on work placements and students. Volunteers, advisers, referees and marshals (at sporting events) are also included within the provisions of the Act.

In short, it is important for any small business to examine very carefully whether employers’ liability insurance is required, and if so, that the relevant level of cover is arranged to cover those in paid or voluntary employment in the business.
