It protects the company's Legal Liability for injury to any person (other than an employee) and damage to someone else's property arising from the works.

It covers the contract period and for the contractors responsibility in the defects liability period and beyond.

The Limit of Indemnity is often specified by a client. Most Local Authorities insisting upon a minimum of £5 Million Public Liability.

  • types of projects and tasks undertaken
  • the number of manual employees
  • manual wage roll of the business including payments to labour only and bona fide sub contractors
  • the types of premises worked on
  • high risk locations - power stations, chemical works, etc
  • the Limit of Indemnity selected (£1 Million, £2 Million, £5 Million or £10 Million)
