Operating as a heating engineer is a very technical line of work, and one that requires specialist skills to undertake. Here at Rhino, we work closely with businesses across the entire UK offering heating engineer insurance that keeps them covered when performing their work. Insurance is there to serve as a positive commodity for trades people, but we understand that often it can seem confusing. What insurance is right for my business? Do I even need insurance? These are questions we often hear, so we want to make insurance simple for heating engineers nationwide.
Public Liability Insurance for Heating Engineers
Among the many different insurances available to heating engineers, the most common and often seen as the most valuable insurance is public liability insurance. Public liability cover for heating engineers provides peace of mind in a trade rife with dangers and risks to both tradesman and customer. Public Liability provides protection against claims arising as a result of accidental death or injury caused by your work to members of the public. Whether this is your customer, client, or a passer-by, if your job causes injury or death to someone else, you will be liable to pay compensation.
We offer 3 core levels of cover for Public Liability Insurance
Rhino’s public liability insurance for plumbing and heating engineers also provides cover in both commercial and domestic environments, meaning that unless you are operating in an extremely hazardous location, chances are that you will be covered. You must remember that claims against your liability insurance can be substantial, therefore having the right level of cover in place is vital in ensuring that should the worst happen, you would still be covered.
