It's important for the companies that you deal with to have worker's compensation and public property liability insurance, otherwise, you may be liable if there's an incident onsite involving the contractor or any of their employees so ensure policies are sited to ensure they are current.
You should be aware of the importance to check that Contractors are Licenced to carry out the works that they have quoted for and to ensure no claims or disputes have been made against the licence holder.
If contractors are not licenced to carry out the works they are doing, the client cannot make a claim against the contractor or insurance policies held by the contractor.
You can do a licence check through 'The Department of Fair Trading'
Once you access the following link under 'Online Services'
