How does insurance for health & safety consultants work?
As a health and safety consultant you will deliver first-class risk assessments as well as providing advice to your clients, all the while providing a professional and sound service. Should a client feel that you have failed to identify or remedy Health and Safety requirements in an inspection, have failed to advise appropriately or have misrepresented new legislation, or have failed to meet the standards of regulation or compliance, then they may choose to place a claim against you should they believe you have been negligent and have caused them damage in any way. Ensuring you have the correct cover in place with a comprehensive Health and Safety Consultants Insurance is vital for protecting you in the event that this happens.
With the help of The Insurance Octopus, you will be able to build a bespoke Health and Safety Consultants Insurance policy built around the needs of your business, so you will only ever pay for the cover you want.
What your health & safety consultants insurance policy includes
Professional Indemnity cover for health & safety consultants

PI insurance will protect you and/or your business against any financial or trading loss that may be caused. Professional Indemnity cover limits are available from £50,000 to £10m.
Employers’ Liability insurance cover
Employers’ Liability insurance cover is required by law if you have one or more employees. Standard Employers Liability cover is £10m and will protect you as the employer against claims from your staff should they be injured or become ill because of the work they do for you.
Public Liability insurance
Public Liability cover protects you if a customers or a member of the public is injured, or their property is damaged. Public liability insurance protects you against the cost of repairs or any legal proceedings that could be filed against you. Standard levels of cover are available from £1m to £5m, with additional levels of cover available upon request and subject to insurer’s terms and conditions.
Legal expenses cover
Legal expenses insurance is there to help you cover the costs of defending legal action.
Cover for Associated Claims

Additional covers available
Business interruption, business equipment, personal accident and more can all be added to your policy as required. Speak to the specialists at The Insurance Octopus to ensure your business insurance policy covers exactly what you will need.
Why you need health & safety consultants insurance
Because your business provides a professional health and safety service, your clients have an expectation of receiving expert guidance and good advice and assessments. If the assessments and consultations that you give are deemed to be insufficient or negligent, then a client could make a legal claim against you.
As a health and safety consultant, your service can shape a business significantly, meaning that the potential cost to your business if a claim is made can be high. As well as any resulting legal expenses there could also be compensation costs to pay if a claim against you is successful, both of which could be detrimental to your future success.
