Do you need Public Liability cover?
Public Liability Insurance is important for all tradies who are self-employed or working as subcontractors or contractors. Basically, if you’re not under a direct employer then you’re exposed to risk which need to be covered by Public Liability Insurance.

If you cause damage or injury, you could be liable for financial damages related to medical bills, rehabilitation costs, repairs and replacements, and legal bills.
While Public Liability Insurance isn’t a legal requirement, there are licencing requirements for some tradies which requires you to have this policy in place. In these instances, you won’t be able to apply for or renew licence without proof the correct cover is in place. Even if you don’t have licencing requirements, many worksites won’t let you onsite without proof of liability cover.

cover you require. Remember to update your insurance broker with any changes in circumstances so your cover can be amended as necessary.
