Scaffolders face far higher premiums for their public liability and employer's liability insurance than many other trades in the construction industry. The reasons for this are many fold – scaffold is erected against the side of a building and can be very high, and be default that means that any minor accident can suddenly become very serious (such as dropping a hammer!) compared to working at ground level. Also, where an employee falls off a ladder or scaffolding, the injuries caused are obviously very serious resulting in very high compensation.
Insurance companies are reluctant to insure scaffolding contractors because of the risks involved. However, we have several specialist insurance schemes for scaffolders and already insure many businesses like yours all around the country. The reason why so many scaffold specialists choose us is because we negotiate with different insurance schemes to obtain the best terms and lowest premium for each and every client.
