Why have Professional Indemnity insurance?

Professional indemnity insurance is designed for professionals who provide advice or services to their customers. It protects your business against legal costs and claims by third parties for damages arising from acts, omissions or breaches of professional duty in the course of your business.

Just because you don't carry out inspections and reports doesn't mean that you don't need Professional Indemnity Insurance.

What it covers

Here are some examples of what your professional indemnity policy would cover:

  • Incorrect weed chemical application that has caused damage to lawns or other property

The above is intended as a summary only of the policy.

General and Public Liability

General and Public Liability covers you for personal injury or property damage occurring in connection with your normal business activities.

Personal injury can occur if someone on, or near, the property that you are working at is hurt because of your activities. That person, or their family, may claim compensation and expenses as a result.

Claims can be made for an injury that occurs from someone tripping over your equipment or an animal being injured or poisoned by your chemicals. Liability insurance also covers damage caused by unintended and unexpected spray drift.

Claims of this nature can take many years to go through the legal system. You therefore need to be sure you have sufficient cover, to protect you against a settlement amount that may be determined in several years time.


Environmental Impairment Insurance

This is often referred to as Sudden and Accidental Pollution Cover and is covered by our liability policy. It covers the cost of containment and clean up of an accidental or unintentional chemical spill or discharge that could cause environmental impairment or pollution. These costs can run into many thousands of dollars.

It protects you in the event of a chemical spill that occurs during your treatment and the spill contaminates waterways, local water authority drainage systems, etc.

However it does not cover you for spillage from your vehicle. For that you require PestShield™ Vehicle Insurance.
