Protecting members of the public

Public Liability Insurance gives businesses cover if a customer or member of the public becomes injured, ill or even dies as a result of an incident connected to that business. In the case of carpenters like you, this could be someone tripping over some wood, cutting themselves on a saw or even being hit by falling tools.

Protecting their property

Public Liability Insurance also covers you should a customer or member of the public look for costs relating to damage to their property following an incident connected to your business. Have you ever accidentally drilled through a wire, miscalculated a measurement or flooded a kitchen? Then this cover could be the perfect protection for you.

Protecting your employees

Employers’ Liability Insurance gives you cover if an employee becomes injured, ill or even dies while they are employed by you and your company. As you know, no matter how hard you try to reduce risks, accidents often happen on busy sites. It also covers you should an employee look for expenses or damages following an incident connected to your business.


Who is considered an employee?

Under Irish law, employers owe a duty of care to their direct employees but also those under their supervision. This can include anyone under a contract of service or apprenticeship; anyone hired or lent to you; anyone undertaking work experience; anyone supplied to or hired by you for labour only; anyone who is self-employed and working under your supervision or any volunteers.

Are Sound Insurance tied to one company?

No, we work with nearly all the main insurers in the Irish and UK markets. That gives us access to over 50 leading insurers.

Can I pay by Direct Debit?

Yes you can. We work with some insurers that have their own direct debit facility. That allows you to pay them directly. And for those that don’t, we work with numerous insurance finance providers, which allows you to spread the cost of your insurance over the policy period.

I need cover straight away, how long does it take?

At Sound Insurance we know that time is precious. So, we won’t take too much of it from you. We do everything over the phone and in most cases, cover can be arranged in minutes, with your certificate being emailed to you straight away.
