"Generally speaking, the higher you work, the higher the insurance risk - using ladders, scaffolding, steeplejacks, those working on roofs - these are all considered by most insurance companies as very high risk occupations."
For roofing contractors, scaffolders, steeplejacks and others working at height, the potential insurance risks include damage to property and vehicles as well as personal injury to employees and members of the public, caused by a range of possible hazards.
"For self-employed scaffolders, it is imperative that they have the appropriate level of business liability insurance to cover themselves, the property that they are working on, their workers and the public."
"Roofers often need to use heating equipment at height, which is clearly a substantially higher risk than most other building contractors. For these reasons, roofers insurance has to cover all potential problems."
