About The Policy

This information relates only to policies purchased online or over the phone.  For all other policies, please contact us for further information.

The policy is issued by High Street Underwriting Agency (HSUA).  Like Trade Risk, HSUA are based in Brisbane and are a multi-award winner.

They have received multiple awards for their insurance products, including their public liability policy which received a Gold rating.

Insurance Awards HSUA

Security for the policy is provided by Lloyds of London.  This is the name that will be on your certificate of currency, and they are approved by the Qld Electrical Safety Office.

Lloyds has been insuring Australian risks for over 150 years, and like all Australian insurers and banks, they are regulated by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA).

Lloyds is one of the worlds largest and oldest insurance markets, having been founded in London over 300 years ago.  In 2016 they processed over $50 billion in premiums.

All this means that you can rest assured, knowing you’re in very good (and strong!) hands when you trust Trade Risk with your insurance needs.

Qld Electrical Contractors Licence Requirements

Here in Queensland, electrical contractors have special requirements for their insurance.

In addition to the minimum $5 million public liability cover (sometimes referred to as public & products liability, or broadform liability) you also require $50,000 consumer protection insurance.

To apply for or renew your licence, you will also need the special certificate of currency approved by the Department of Justice and Attorney General – Electrical Safety Office.

All policies issued by Trade Risk meet these requirements, as long as you select the occupation Electricaian (QLD) when requesting a quote.
