Gas Fitters Insurance FAQs

Can I work on site where I’m not the lead contractor?

Yes. Your policy gives you peace of mind and covers you if you are not the lead contractor on site.

Am I covered if I drop an appliance?

Yes. Your policy covers you should you drop a compressor, heavy tools, or piping.

Why do I need gas fitters-specific insurance?

Some general policies could contain inadequacies that would leave your business uninsured in the event of a major loss. Therefore, protect your company with an industry-specific policy.

Why does a gas fitter need public liability insurance?

Gas fitters risk legal action in respect of their liability for personal injury or property damage arising from their activities. The awards that can made as a result of a successful claim can be substantial but even the legal costs of defending the most spurious claim can cause severe financial hardship.

Are labour-only subcontractors covered in the same way that direct PAYE staff are under the employer’s liability policy?

Yes, both types of employers are covered for the same risks although it is very important you declare how your workforce are employed as it will affect how your risks are calculated.

Is the financial rating of an insurer an important factor?

As the system measures an insurer’s financial situation, allowing you to predict their ability to meet ongoing policy obligations, it is an important factor.

Also, there are a number of main contractors that will not sub-contract works to any companies not insured with an insurer with a minimum of an A-financial rating (as determined by established ratings companies).

If you have any concerns about whether this may affect your business or have any questions around the rating of an insurer speak with one of our advisors.

Can I pay in instalments?

To help you spread the cost of your premiums, we offer a quick and easy direct debit scheme for spreading payment over ten months. Please visit our dedicated Direct Debit page to find out more.
