Welder's Insurance

Insurance for Welders

Insurance arranged for welders whether you work with oxy acetylene, arc, mig or tig equipment and cover extends to protect you in a variety of different environments whether workshop based or mobile​.

Arranged by Primo plc

Required Insurance

Many brokers include welders in/or as steel fabricators but, as I'm sure you are aware, welders can often work with a variety of metals and alloys and therefore we separate the two industries to ensure our welders are receiving the correct cover for their business.

Welders insurance is tailored specifically to your business' unique needs. Of course, crossovers between the two trades may occur and our brokers are specialised in both areas so you will be in safe and experienced hands.

Welding can deliver a lot of varied work and can have you working in many different environments from being based in a workshop to being mobile and working on a client's premises or construction sites. No matter what type of service you offer or where you carry out your work we have a variety of cover options we can tailor to your business.

  • Public Liability

    Welders public liability insurance covers you and your business against financial loss in the event of a claim being made against you for third-party damages including injury, damage to property, illness or death.

  • Employers Liability

    A legal requirement for most employers who hire staff whether full or part time, temporary or even on a voluntary basis.
