At Goldcrest we have been specializing in welders public liability for 30 years protecting our clients from any claims they have, which could potentially have a shattering effect on their business. Welding insurance is generally higher rated than some of the standard liabilities due to the nature of heats works. Any trade INVOLVING HEAT WORKS .. ie Roofing carries higher premiums due to the consequence it may have. An example would be if you were doing works away from your own premises and you were Welding and set alight to something and in turn this burnt down a house or a factory then this would be a huge pay out from the insurer costing thousands if not hundreds of thousands of pounds !! Cover is also there in case members of the public make claims against you.
