As the eighth-largest furniture exporter in the world, carpenters of all talents and expertise are needed to ensure wooden products look good and are made with good quality. Not only are carpenters responsible for crafting beautiful furniture, but they are also responsible for building, maintaining, and repairing many structures made of wood and other materials. The work of a carpenter takes years of hard work and practice. That’s why ALIGNED wants to ensure that your talent is protected.
Why is Insurance for Carpenters Important?
Whether you own a carpentry business or are an independent contractor, insurance will cover you against liability, third-party claims, and any losses or damages that occur. Here are just some of the risks that can happen:
- A natural disaster or act of theft can damage your carpenter shop or studio.
- Bodily injuries from repetitive movements, lifting heavy materials, using electrical equipment, or working in stagnant and awkward positions.
- Bodily injuries to others, from operating saws, knives, chisels, etc.
- Fires due to flammable materials, such as wood dust or combustible dust.
- Bodily injuries to a third party or their property because of your work.
You might also encounter financial issues, such as not receiving full payment for your work. However, having insurance will protect your carpentry business.
