Why Plumbers and Heating Engineers need liability insurance

When you are working with water, gas or heat, a number of problems can occur. The most common claim would be water damage to a customers property, maybe because the pipe connection has not been sealed tight enough and a water leak has occurred. If you are a Gas Safe registered engineer, you will know how to work safely on gas appliances, but accidents can still happen. This is why public liability insurance is crucial.

It protects you from the cost of any unexpected incidents that plumbing, heating & gas engineers could be liable for, which could result in financial difficulties for you and your company. Public liability insurance for plumbing and heating engineers is not compulsory but essential to ensure your business’ survival.

Common types of claims

  • A sink tap that you have fitted leaks, causing damage to the kitchen cupboard beneath
  • You drop a spanner in a bath, causing it to crack and need replacing
  • A cooker is not fitted correctly and a gas leak sparks a fire in the customer’s property

This cover is optional but Ashburnham recommend that you certainly consider having it. ou are bound to give advice to clients from time to time and you are also providing them with a service. If a mistake is made and you are found to be negligent or your advice is not correct, they may seek financial compensation from you. Professional Indemnity provides cover for the legal costs in defending the claim as well as compensation to the client to rectify your mistake.
