Public liability insurance

Business equipment insurance covers the cost to replace the equipment you use, but it won't cover you if a member of the public is injured by your equipment. Public liability insurance cover will help protect your business against damage and the cost of legal claims people may make against you.

Product liability insurance

Product liability insurance covers the products you make in your business or products you supply to your customers, rather than the equipment you use to make them.
