Groundwork and excavation

Business insurance for groundwork and excavation services


Construction and excavation sites can be dangerous places, what with all the large machinery and heavy building materials around. With the amount of hazards that are posed by such an environment, accidents can happen to even the most experienced and risk-averse of workers.


As a company offering groundwork and excavation services, you will need to be able to properly brace yourselves for such accidents occurring. Otherwise, the resulting compensation claims could potentially end up tearing your business down to the ground. Having the right business insurance in place will allow you to operate without fear of a nasty surprise taking up more of your valuable time and money than it needs to.


Possible risks to be mindful of as a groundworker or excavation contractor include the causing of any unintentional damage to the site or property around you. This could be the accidental cutting of a power line or damage to any other public utility mains. Although not a legal requirement, public liability insurance is your safest bet to ensure that you’re well protected from any claims made by someone who is negatively affected by your business operation.


If you’re the owner of a company that employs groundworkers, you are legally obligated to purchase employers’ liability insurance so that you will be able to sufficiently compensate an employee in the event that they are badly injured – possibly from being struck by a moving excavation vehicle. Then, of course, you will also need to insure the machinery itself in case it ends up damaged or stolen. Plant and machinery insurance is your best option for this.
