Understanding what type of insurance you need is key to protecting your business.
Whether you’re operating as an individual tradie or you run a larger electrician business, working as an electrician involves a level of risk so having the right insurance in place is essential for your safety and your peace of mind.
Insurance can be an expense you’d rather do without but if something unforeseen should happen, or you or another person is injured because of the work you carry out, insurance is going to be your best friend!
Phoenix Insurance Brokers understands you’d rather focus on your trade and servicing your customers instead of the different insurance policies available for electricians. So that’s where we come in. Phoenix is here to take care of all your small business insurance needs and advise you on the type of insurance that’s best for your electrician business.
Some types of insurance are essential for electricians and some are recommended.
Public Liability insurance is essential and Professional Indemnity insurance is typically recommended. Insurance for your tools is highly recommended as is commercial vehicle insurance for the vehicles you use to get to and from jobs. Workers Compensation insurance is a must if you employ other tradies and staff.

Some people dream of running their own business but that doesn’t mean there aren’t challenges and risks along the way and a lot of hard work. While we can’t help run the day to day, we can put you on the right path when it comes to insurance. Having the right insurance in place is essential to protect your electrician business against unexpected challenges.
Whatever your business, having the right insurance in place to protect you is essential so that when something goes wrong, you’re covered. Sifting through the myriad policies on the market and knowing what policies will best protect you can be a minefield. That’s when an experienced insurance broker who can guide you through the maze and explain the pros and cons of insurance can be very helpful. Having the right insurance in place can make all the difference to your bottom line should things go wrong. Below are some of the different types of insurance you need to consider for your electrician business.
Public Liability Insurance is one of the most important types of cover for electricians.
Electrician Public Liability insurance can protect an electrician if they injure a person or damage their property through negligence in their work. This cover is essential for electricians, as a small accident or oversight in their work can lead to property damage or severe injuries.
Public Liability insurance can cover the financial expenses incurred from a third-party claim against an electrician, including legal costs, fees and other expenses. However, it will not cover claims or injuries by your employees. To cover yourself against these sorts of claims, Workers’ Compensation Insurance is required as a part of your overall electrician insurance policy.
A common question we get asked is ‘do electricians need professional indemnity insurance?’ the answer is yes. Professional Indemnity insurance should always be included in a comprehensive electrician insurance policy.
As an electrician, you will advise on electrical project design and specifications. There is always a possibility that the advice is problematic, which can cause someone to suffer a loss. In this case, a claim for compensation can be made against you.
Electricity is dangerous and the wrong advice could have disastrous and costly consequences. It’s essential to have Professional Indemnity Insurance included in your electrician insurance policy to protect yourself against these claims.
Tools are an important part of an electrician’s job. If your tools are stolen or vandalised, work can’t be completed. Unfortunately, theft of tools is a common occurrence, as they’re an easy target due to their value.
Taking out a Trades insurance policy for your tools can be an affordable way to secure them and it can save you losing time and money being unable to work. Tools Insurance can provide immediate funds to purchase a new set of quality tools, allowing you to get back to work without relying on cheap, temporary replacements.
Along with tools, electricians usually have a work vehicle to take them to and from jobs. Whether it’s a car, ute or van, securing your vehicle with a Commercial Vehicle Insurance policy can cover you if your car is damaged and you’re left unable to work.
Commercial Vehicle Insurance can be applied to all vehicle types as a part of your electrician insurance, including trailers, trucks, and mobile machinery. This type of insurance commonly covers the liability of the driver, replacement car costs, repair costs and costs for disruption of business.
Workers Compensation insurance is compulsory insurance cover in Australia required by law. Workers’ Compensation insurance is designed to cover the cost of an employee injury while at work, including if they are injured while working offsite.
Electrical contractors face numerous risks throughout the day, including dealing with electrical wires, climbing on high heights and dealing with transformers. Even the most careful and properly trained electrical contractors can encounter accidents.
Depending on the policy, Workers’ Compensation Insurance can cover:
• Medical expenses
• Hospital cover
• Lump-sum payment
• Wages for a temporary replacement
If you employ other workers, each of them will need to be covered by appropriate Workers’ Compensation insurance. Without this cover as a part of your electrician insurance, your business could face large government penalties, as well as liability for medical bills and other expenses.
Starting your own electrician business can be a big step and a dream come true for many people. You know you’re going to work hard because you’re working for yourself and the work you put in should mean you see the rewards. Whether you’re starting a business, or you’ve been running your own business for a while and you know you need to get on to sorting out your electrical contractors insurance, Phoenix Insurance Brokers can guide you every step of the way.
Now that we’ve covered the basics and some insurance options for you to consider above, there’s no better time than today to get in touch with your local Phoenix Insurance Broker to talk about how we can help you safeguard your electrician business.

Common types of insurance taken out by electrician businesses include Public Liability insurance, Professional Indemnity insurance and Tools insurance.

Your Phoenix Insurance Broker can tailor a policy specific to your electrician business needs.
You must have workers’ compensation insurance for anyone you employ in your electrician business including full-time workers on a wage or salary, part-time, casual, and seasonal workers. This is a mandatory insurance in Australia.
