If you own an electrician business, your employees may face risks such as exposure to electric shock, falls, or repetitive stress injuries. Your customers could become injured by trip hazards like extension cords or step ladders. Your machinery could be dropped or otherwise damaged.

Fortunately, when you carry the right types of electrician insurance, your customers, employees, and small business property may be covered.
