What is Electrician Insurance?

As an electrical contractor, your clients depend on your expertise to ensure that all electricals in their building work properly.  From troubleshooting electronic systems to repairing circuit breakers, each project presents a different level of risk for accidents, damages, or injuries.

Electrician Insurance is a policy package designed for electricians and electrical contractors that provides financial coverage for common liability risks you may be exposed to on the job, such as third-party injuries and property damage.


What insurance does an electrical contractor need?

Electrical contractors conduct a lot of hands-on work with a variety of electrical components, therefore it is critical to have insurance coverage specifically designed for the risks you encounter and the equipment that you own.

A comprehensive Electrician Insurance policy should typically cover the following:

  • General Liability Insurance: covers costs associated with common electrician liability risks, such as slip-and-fall injuries or third-party property damage.
  • Tools and Equipment Insurance: covers the cost to repair or replace your tools and equipment due to damage from work accidents (includes vandalism) or loss (includes theft).
    • Business property valued under $1,500 is classified as tools, and anything over is considered equipment.
  • Pollution Liability Insurancecovers third-party bodily injury, property damage, and environmental damage due to both gradual and sudden pollution events that occur on a covered job site.

Professional Indemnity Insurance:  This policy is necessary for electricians who offer design work or consultation, to protect you from lawsuit claims of damage due to errors and omissions in the service you provided.

Commercial Auto Insurance: provides financial coverage for any business-owned vehicles along with employees who drive it from accidents, damages, and theft.


Who needs Electrician Insurance?

Regardless of the electrical services provided (residential or commercial), there may still be liability risks of slip-and-fall injuries and property damage.
