Tailored Construction Insurance For You & Your Team

When you run a construction firm, time is of the essence. Whether it’s a medium-sized or big construction company, every day is a push for time you just don’t have. You’re bogged down in admin tasks, endless mountains of paperwork and invoices, whilst at the same time trying to coordinate a team of workers, contractors and subcontractors to keep the job moving along on schedule. Even when you get home at the end of a long day, your workday doesn’t stop – you’re often working till late at night, rushing around trying to get everything done. The absolute last thing you need on your mind at the end of it all is a huge compensation claim which threatens the life of your business.

And that’s where we step in. Here at Henry Seymour & Co, we’ve been working with construction firms like yours through our brand, Tradesman Saver, since our initial inception. Together with the help of our customers, we’ve designed an insurance policy specifically designed around the construction industry’s unique needs and demands, to ensure our customers get exactly what they need, every time.

Understanding Your Insurance:  Typical Construction Insurance Claims

In the construction industry, there are a great number of risks to contend with on a daily basis. That’s why, when it comes to buying insurance, you want to know exactly what you’re covered for. But sometimes it’s not enough to know which covers are included under your policy – you want to see them in action in the real world, to truly understand how they can help you protect your business. In the below section, we highlight some examples of construction insurance claims, and the covers that would protect you in those instances:


Caution with cranes

You’re overseeing a job on a construction site with your crew, building a block of flats for a relatively big development. One of your contractors is operating a crane and is lifting some steel girders into place on an upper floor. Unfortunately, as they’re lifting it into place, a strong gust of wind sways the arm of the crane and the girder hits one of your employees working on the floor below, causing them severe injuries. This employee then chooses to seek compensation from you for their injuries. In this case, your employer’s liability insurance will protect you – through it, your insurer will cover the costs of the claim for you, so your business doesn’t have to suffer because of an unforeseen accident.

Up in flames

You’re overseeing a construction project on a set of new build terrace houses. Most of the outer building work has been finished and you’ve hired an electrical contractor to come in and do the wiring on one of the mostly finished properties. But unfortunately, as they’re working, they make a mistake in the wiring and the building catches fire, burning away months of hard work. This is one of those situations where you’ll be glad of your contractor’s all risks insurance – with it, your insurer will cover the costs of re-doing the work, so you don’t end up out of pocket for someone else’s mistake.
