The Importance of Business Insurance for Ground Workers

Ground workers are one of the first tradesmen on site, and your role is arguably one of the highest risk aspects of construction, as it’s riddled with potential dangers and you can never be entirely sure what will show up as you’re digging the foundations. So having comprehensive insurance cover is essential.

It’s your job to determine the levels, prepare and dig the ground, excavate and lay concrete foundations. You’re also responsible for drainage installation and pipework. While it’s satisfying to see the result of your work, one miscalculation could disrupt the entire project. There’s also the potential danger of hitting an electricity, gas or water main, causing widespread disruption. And the equipment you use is hazardous to you, your employees and subcontractors, and the general public, not to mention at risk of theft and accidental damage.

As your role is so varied and specialised, your insurance needs should be the same. With so many potential dangers to navigate, having the appropriate insurance for your trade is important, coupled with the peace of mind we hope you get from knowing you and your business are protected.
