Civil Engineers and Groundworkers

Civil engineers and groundworkers are usually the first trades on site and the last trades off site. You work in high-risk environments on a daily basis and need insurance to protect against the perils you face….

Get in touch

Civil engineers and groundworkers insurance can include public liability insurance which will protect you in the event of a third party claim such as bodily injury or damage to property that may accidentally occur during the day to day running of your business. If your business employs any staff including full-time, part-time, apprentices or temporary employees, UK law requires you to have employers liability insurance

Insurers tend to believe that groundworkers and civil engineers pose a potentially high risk under public liability insurance. On the face of it working at ground level seems low risk, however the high risk element can be working at depth or subterranean works where damage can be done to services, pipes, and cables.
