Chimney sweeps

Confident cover for all chimney sweeps


Regardless of what Dick Van Dyke says, a sweep isn’t always as lucky as lucky can be. In fact, sometimes the job of a chimney sweep can be very dangerous, and if the right precautions aren’t taken, accidents are likely to end up happening.


Bear in mind that when you go onto a client’s property, there is an abundance of risks that immediately become apparent, and each one needs to be considered and prepared for by you and your staff so that you can go about your business and offer a great service, leaving your client with an ash-free fireplace.


There is the possibility, for instance, that a piece of unsecured equipment could fall and cause damage to the home, or it could injure a resident or one of your employees. And let’s not forget that, as well as your equipment, there is also the risk of you or a worker falling off a roof. Obviously, this can have devastating consequences but, with the correct safety measures in place, it is very unlikely that it will happen. Nevertheless, it is your duty to be braced for the worst. In fact, if you have any workers under your employment, it is your legal responsibility to have employers’ liability insurance in place to cover the cost of any claims made by injured employees.


And, of course, a tradesman is nothing without his tools. Without your cleaning supplies, you won’t get very far clearing out any chimneys. Therefore, it is a very good idea to purchase cover for if your tools get damaged or go missing, temporarily putting you out of order.
