Do painters need public and product liability insurance?

Without a doubt, painters generally face many risks when on the job. Their work environment requires them to work from varying heights and move around frequently, presenting many risks to both the painter themselves and third parties. Whilst it would be great to be able to rely on a stroke of luck to stay safe, accidents nevertheless may occur, and this is a risk that painters should not just brush off.

This is why public and product liability insurance is so important. For situations where there is damage to a third party or their property, public and product liability insurance can offer protection for the business.

Picture This

A painter accidentally drops an oil-base paint which damages their customer’s expensive tiles, and the homeowner slips and falls due to the spill. In these circumstances, the painter may be liable for damages to their client’s property as well as liability for the third party’s personal injury. Moreover, if the painter was a sole trader, this could potentially expose them personally as well.

In a range of circumstances, Marsh can organise a range of insurance policies which seek to help protect Painters to ensure you can brush yourself off and get your business back up and running in no time.

There are a number of insurance solutions that should be considered as a professional painter. These include:

The insurance needs of a painter can vary, depending onthe type of work, activities that theyperform. Marsh’s Trades team can help clients to understand the nuts and bolts of theindustry risk needs. 

 

You can’t paint all insurance products with a broad brush

Although we understand that the price of your insurance premium is a significant factor when comparing various policies, it is also important that you pay attention to other important features when carrying out a side-by-side comparison. 

Insurance providers can base a policy’s premium on the risks they take on and having a high number of exclusions can reduce these risks, which should result in a lower premium. We recommend that you carefully assess the policy wording and/or product disclosure statement in advance, to ensure that the cover you are considering is adequate for your business’s unique needs.

Just as painters need to prepare all the right tools and paints to be able to deliver the best job, you too should also make sure your prepared with an appropriate policy that meets your business’s requirements.

Here at Marsh, we negotiate competitive premium prices and insurance cover. We also work with insurance providers and industry associations to ensure that the offered policy is designed to suit your industry risks and insurance needs.
