Tree surgeons

Protect your tree surgeon business with Tredstone


As a tree surgeon or arborist, you will be trusted with operating equipment that can lead to some nasty accidents if it’s not properly handled. Owners of tree surgeon businesses will no doubt know that the correct safety measures need to be taken on site so that the possibility of anyone being injured, both employees and the public, is kept at an absolute minimum. But, even the most cautious of companies can experience the occasional crisis when a job doesn’t go completely to plan, and without the proper liability insurance in place to keep your tree surgeons business standing tall, the consequent financial losses could be enough to send it crashing to the ground.


Public liability insurance


A falling tree or branch could cause a great deal of property damage if it hits a nearby building or parked vehicle. The same goes for falling equipment – saws can be very dangerous when used at a height and anyone walking below or nearby could be at risk if correct safety measures are not put in place.


Employer’s liability insurance


If you are a business owner who has hired staff of any kind, it is a legal requirement to have employers’ liability insurance in place so that you are financially protected against any compensation claims they may make. This could happen is case an employee is injured from using a piece of equipment, such as a chainsaw, and blames you, perhaps because they feel that you failed to properly train them or provided them with faulty tools.


More cover options


There are also the tools and machinery themselves to cover in case they are damaged or get stolen. Plant and machinery insurance and Tools and equipment cover will safeguard your income if anything happens to your equipment and puts a halt to your work activity.
