What is Electrical Contractors Insurance?
Electrical Contractors Insurance is a specialised form of business insurance designed to meet the unique risks and challenges faced by electrical contractors. In the electrical contracting industry, the stakes are high. One small mistake can lead to significant financial loss or even legal repercussions. That's why it's essential to have Electrical Contractors Insurance.
What insurance does an electrical contractor need?
- Employers' Liability Insurance: Required by law if you employ one or more people. This insurance covers the costs of compensating employees who are injured or become ill through work.

- Vehicle Insurance: If your business owns and operates vehicles, it's legally required to have at least third-party insurance to cover injuries to other people and damage to their property.
