Test & Tag

Insurance for the test & tag industry

A big part of the test and tag industry is ensuring that people are kept safe and protected.

But what about protecting yourself? Have you thought about what is needed to look after yourself and your business?

Thankfully there are various forms of insurance designed to protect people in the test and tag industry.

In this guide we’ll take a look at the types of insurance available and how you could benefit from them.

Insurance Requirements

For test and tag business owners and operators there are three main types of insurance which are most important. These are public liability, professional indemnity and income protection.

Public Liability

Public liability is designed to protect you and your business in the event that your actions result in property damage or personal injury to another person.

Generally for a public liability claim to be successful you will need to be shown to be liable for the incident and to have acted negligently.

You can find out more about public liability insurance by following the link.

Professional Indemnity

Another important form of cover, and some would argue the most important, is professional indemnity insurance.

Whilst public liability covers you for your physical work and actions, professional indemnity covers you for the advice that you give in relation to testing and tagging.

Income Protection

Both of the abovementioned covers are designed primarily to protect your customers and members of the public, but what about protecting yourself?

If you are ill or injured and are unable to work in test and tag for a period of time, income protection can replace a large percentage of your income until you are well enough to return.

Other

As with all business types, there are a number of other forms of cover which can help to protect a test and tag business, as well as their staff, management and owners.

Some of these covers include tools and equipment insurance, business interruption and business expense insurance.

For more information about these covers it is best to speak with a qualified insurance broker, such as those working with us here at Trade Risk.

Queensland Requirements

In Queensland there is an additional requirement for people operating a test and tag business.

In addition to the standard requirements, Queenslanders will also require an electrical contractors licence.

In order to obtain a Qld electrical contractors licence you will need to hold public liability insurance along with an endorsement for consumer protection insurance. You can find out more about this specific cover by following the link.

    "I was very disappointed with the way the renewal advice was done. I felt like I was being bullied into making a decision. I requested information regarding the ‘advice’ given re the difference between the old and new policy and why. This did not happen. All I got was the new policy. I did my own research and chose Trade Risk as it was already done. Maybe I’m old school, I still think a phone call is a better option as an initial point of contact and followed up by an email . Thank you"
