What do I need to be aware of as a Contractor?

As an employer you have a legal requirement for employers liability cover.  This provides cover in the event of your employee injuring themselves whilst at work.

Ensure you have risk assessments and method statements in place for all work undertaken and contracts you have in place.  You should have a full written health and safety policy in place which should be distributed to all employees and a record kept of that process as required under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

Whether you are a sole trader or a limited company you have the same responsibility to your employees and members of the public.

Do you have a large amount of tools that need insured?  Where do you keep them and do you keep all of your receipts and invoices?  You will need these in the event of a loss and some insurers will not cover theft from a van overnight.  Beware the some insurers will restrict theft cover from a van overnight.

Ensure that the business description on your policy covers all the types of work you are engaged in. You must immediately advise any changes that may be required as new contracts are secured to ensure you have the correct cover in place in the event of a loss. For example:  If you are a joiner and take on a roofing contract this is a material change to your Business and your Insurers must be advised.
