Did you know that the first hard hat intended for development sites was produced in 1919 and was called the “hard-boiled hat” due to steam being used during the manufacturing process.
Whether you have land awaiting development or a fully active building site, someone could go onto your development plot and injure themselves and, through no obvious fault of your self, hold you liable for compensation. Development sites are often in towns and cities and can become a magnet for children to play in. If a child were to climb on the roof of a structure before the construction work starts and then fall this may be covered under public liability insurance for a development site.
Construction equipment and machinery such as diggers, cranes and the like are generally okay. Just let us know what you intend to have but as these should have their own separate cover, this shouldn’t be a problem.
Premiums for construction site cover begin from as little as £260.00 per year. Prices differ depending on whether there is activity on the land or not.
