What is Welding Contractor Insurance?
Welding can be rewarding work, but it’s work that comes with certain risks. Welders not only faced common risks that many businesses are exposed to, but they also have industry-specific risks to guard against. Welding contractor Insurance can help Massachusetts welders safeguard themselves against many of the common and less common risks that they face.
Welding contractor insurance is specialized commercial insurance for professional welders. Because welders and their businesses are exposed to multiple risks, welding contractor policies usually are package policies and have multiple coverages within them. Welders can frequently choose the exact coverages that they want in a policy.
What Massachusetts Businesses Should Carry Welder Insurance?
Most Massachusetts businesses that primarily weld should carry welder insurance, regardless of whether the welding is for in-house operations or for customers. Few other insurance products are able to provide the specific protections that welders need.
In some cases, businesses that are involved in welding and other work might require a more extensive insurance policy. An insurance agent who specializes in welding policies in similar ones can guide such businesses toward the right insurance products.
For some examples, the following businesses are just a few of the ones that probably should consider purchasing welder insurance:
- Pipe welding specialists
- Factors that weld parts together
- New construction builders that weld structural components
- Marine construction builders that weld structural components
- Auto service centers that weld vehicle parts
- Other specialized welding businesses
