Why Lift Engineers need liability insurance

Working on lifts, you are putting many people’s lives in your own hands. By the simple nature of what a lift does, there is the danger of an incident occurring at height and if something were to go wrong then there is a real risk of injury or even death. You may have given a high-rise lift the all clear to resume service but not tightened a belt properly resulting in the lift plummeting to the bottom of the shaft. Having public liability insurance should be the first thing considered by someone working in this trade.

The protection provides cover against accidents that lift engineers and installers could be liable for that end up leading to financial difficulties for you and your business. Public liability insurance for lift engineers is not compulsory but essential to ensure the future of your business.

Common types of claims

  • A stair lift is not properly fitted and comes away from the wall during use causing serious injury to the user
  • Installing a passenger lift you accidentally smash a window with your equipment
  • You leave tools on the floor that someone trips over and injures themselves

This cover is optional but Ashburnham recommend that you certainly consider getting it. You might also want to take out contract works cover to provide compensation for incidents involving large jobs your are involved in.
