Business insurance for carpenters?
A carpenter’s primary must-have policy is public liability, covering third party personal injury or damage to property during the course of their work. They should also consider insuring their tools of trade anywhere in Australia. A good tools policy will include theft from the open air and theft from unattended motor vehicles, which is a common occurrence in the construction industry.
Workers Compensation insurance must also be taken out for any carpenters with employees. Carpenters should also include any sole trader subcontractors who work for them under their Workers Compensation policy, as sole traders are not able to obtain Workers Compensation for themselves.
