Insurance for electricians
As an electrician, you know clients depend on your expertise to ensure that all electrical wiring and outlets in their building are working correctly. From troubleshooting electronic systems to repairing circuit breakers, each project presents a different level of risk for accidents, damages, or injuries.
Running an electrician business has unique risks – and that’s where we can help. At Zensurance, we’ve helped more than 100,000 entrepreneurs protect their businesses with insurance policies designed to cover their specific needs.
Electrician insurance policy packages are specially designed to protect professional electricians against specific risks associated with providing electrical repair services, including equipment- and third-party-related damages and injuries.
Insurance for electricians describes several combined insurance policies to provide comprehensive coverage. Typically, electrical business insurance will include the following coverages:
Commercial General Liability Insurance (CGL): CGL is a basic form of liability coverage that protects electricians against day-to-day risks that may be encountered while running your business, such as third-party bodily injury or property damage. CGL generally covers medical fees and legal expenses, regardless of the lawsuit outcome.
Professional Liability Insurance: Also referred to as Errors & Omissions Insurance (E&O), Professional Liability Insurance provides coverage for electricians in cases of misconduct, negligence, or failure to deliver services as promised. If your clients are dissatisfied with your professional advice or services, and believe they did not yield the expected results, they may take legal action against you. For example, your client asks you to check on the safety of their electrical outlets. You fail to notice several aren’t up to code, and a week later, a fire breaks out from one of the faulty outlets. Your client sues you for negligence to notice the outlets that needed fixing.
Equipment and Tools Insurance: Equipment and Tools Insurance covers – you guessed it – equipment and tools. This policy covers loss or damage to the equipment you use to complete your job – whether you own the equipment or it’s in your care. For example, if your toolset was stolen overnight from a job site, Equipment and Tools insurance coverage could cover the cost to replace the stolen tools.
You should also consider the following coverages based on your services:
Pollution Liability Insurance: Pollution liability can be necessary for electricians. This insurance provides coverage for third-party bodily injury, property damage, and environmental damage due to both gradual and sudden pollution events that occur on a covered job site. This coverage could cover civil fines or penalties, assessments, emergency response costs, and clean-up costs.
Commercial Auto Insurance: Commercial Auto Insurance is necessary if you drive a vehicle for work purposes. This coverage could protect against third-party injury and damage, as well as physical damage to your vehicle (depending on the coverage you opt for).
Many factors go into the total cost of your electrician insurance policy. A low-risk small business can expect to spend approximately $540/year on a Commercial General Liability policy with a limit of $2M.
