Are you missing an essential tool of the trade?
Whether you’re an electrician, plumber, builder or any other tradie, working in a trade can be risky business.
On top of the day-to-day risks of manual labour, you face the same health threats as everyone else – like cancer and heart disease. And you can only be as productive as your body lets you be.
Which begs the question: how important is your income in supporting the financial well-being of you and your family? When you have a family, debts, and a business to run, life insurance is a vital back-up plan for any tradesperson.
Did you know that labourers and trade workers had the highest rates of work-related injury of any occupation in 2005/6 (Australian Bureau of Statistics, June 2010)? Workers’ Compensation can provide some protection for work-related injuries. But it doesn’t cover injuries away from work or even illnesses such as cancer and heart disease.
