Our aim is to provide UK contractors with everything they need for a happy contracting lifestyle, all under one roof, by providing assistance and service with IR35 issues as well as sustaining excellent quality and competitive premiums in the contractor insurance market.

    Public and Employers Liability Insurance

  • qdos-rope-access-insurance Qdos Contractor Liability Insurance Liability Insurance

    If you are not the sole employee of your business, even if you simply hire a spouse to do the books, you may be legally obliged to hold employers’ liability insurance.

    Contact
  • Public Liability Insurance will react in circumstances where a third party (an individual person, or a corporate entity) brings legal action against you in respect of physical injury, or damage to property, caused by you in the course of your business. Public Liability is designed to defend your case and, if necessary, pay the damages owed.

    Employers Liability Insurance will react in circumstances where an employee seeks to bring a claim against you for personal injury or accidental death sustained as a result of their employment with you. Employers Liability will defend such a claim and pay the damages for which you are liable. Employers Liability Insurance is compulsory for any business that has one or more employees, whether they are permanent, part time, or temporary. Employers Liability is not a legal requirement if you are a ‘Ltd’ Company, you are the only employee and you own at least 50% of the issued share capital of the company.

    Offshore Insurance

    The offshore working environment is highly specialised and, consequentially, many insurers choose to avoid offering cover to those providing services in such locations. Qdos has worked hard to understand the risks associated with offshore work and are able to offer Employers and Public Liability to a wide variety of self-employed workers (including those providing rope access services) at highly competitive rates.


    What to consider when choosing oil and gas contractor insurance

    • Your end client or agency may expect a particular level of indemnity from your cover, so you should check any contractual requirements.
    • Rigging and rope access work is covered. Manual workers will need to proceed to the 'Questions' page of the quote engine to obtain an accurate quotation.
    • If you are not the sole employee of your business, even if you simply hire a spouse to do the books, you may be legally obliged to hold employers’ liability insurance.
    • Contractors Sickness Cover will cover you for offshore work, however excludes transit to/from an offshore installation by air/sea.
