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 tradesmen like you, this could be someone slipping on uneven surfaces, tripping over tools or being hit by falling objects.
Protecting your property
Commercial Property Insurance covers you for things like buildings and contents; damage to grounds; public liability; and commercial legal protection. It also covers you for areas like rent, rates, salaries, gross profits, increases in your cost of working and alternative premises hire. And, in the event of a fire within your premises, it can pay for reinstatement of your building, stock, fixtures and fittings.
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.
Am I required to have Employers’ Liability Insurance?
No. There is no statutory requirement to have Employers’ Liability Insurance in Ireland, however many contracts may stipulate that you may require this type of cover

Yes. Once you simply tell us about it, Sound Insurance will organise cover for your cash in your ATM both during and outside of business hours subject to specified policy limits.
Should I have Public Liability Insurance?
