We all know that tradesmen need a variety of different insurances for their business, but what exactly are these policies and what do they achieve?

Public Liability & Tool Insurance

These two types of insurance are very popular with tradesmen, and are often bundled into a single policy.

Public liability insurance is designed to protect you and your business from the financial consequences of personal injury or property damage suffered by others because of your actions. If you are sued for damages, the insurance company will take care of the claim.

Tool insurance simply covers your tools against loss or damage. Although the policy may seem basic, there are some major differences between the different insurers in terms of theft coverage, so you need to check these details before taking out a policy.

Public liability is often mandatory to enter a worksite, but tool insurance is completely optional.

Income Protection Insurance

Income protection is another form of insurance that is mandatory to enter many worksites.

This insurance is designed to replace a large percentage of your income is cannot work for a period of time due to illness or injury.

Proper income protection is often confused with covers such as injury and illness or sickness and accident insurance. Although the covers are very similar, only income protection provides the full level of protection.

Life, TPD & Trauma Insurance

These types of insurance are not as popular as some of the other forms of tradesman insurance, however they are very important, especially for tradies with mortgages or families to support.

TPD insurance is probably the most popular of the three with tradesmen, and it provides them with a lump sum if they suffer a serious injury or illness that leaves them unable to work ever again.

Trauma insurance also pays a lump sum amount, however this pays out when you suffer a critical illness or condition such as cancer, heart attack or stroke. This insurance is important for all tradies, but is especially important for older tradesmen.

Most of us already know what life insurance is. It simply pays out a lump sum if you die or are diagnosed with a terminal illness. Life insurance is vital for any tradesman with a mortgage or family to support.
