WeldersLife insurance for welders can often be available at normal terms with UK insurers. With all the safety measures that you have in place, insurers don’t see your work as particularly high risk.

To find the right insurer for you our advisers will ask:

  • Do you work in the UK or abroad?
  • Are you working at heights?
  • Do you work offshore?

If you are regularly working outside of the UK or travelling to countries that are seen as high risk to the insurer, you might find that you are offered non-standard terms for life insurance. This is usually an increase to the premiums.

But, some insurers do this, not all of them. Our award winning advisers are here to find the right insurer and best life insurance for you.

Critical illness cover pays out a cash lump sum of money, if you are diagnosed with a medical condition that is listed in the insurer’s claims set e.g. cancer, heart attack, stroke.

Critical illness cover for welders will usually be available at standard terms with many providers.

Insurers generally do not see being a welder as presenting a significant risk of causing a critical illness to develop. 

Work outside of the UK or at heights could potentially change the choice of insurer that will suit you the most.

Our expert advisers will find the best critical illness cover to meet your needs.

Income protection pays you a replacement of your monthly income, if you are unable to work due to ill health.

Income protection for welders can often be arranged at normal terms with specific insurance providers.

Insurers are very aware that you will follow health and safety procedures as part of your work. But your occupation can be seen as high risk by some, because it does not take too much for your health to change and you be unable to work.

This can mean that you can see huge differences to the cost of income protection, between different insurers.

Our advisers are here to find the best income protection policy to meet your needs and give you peace of mind.

It is always a good idea to make sure that you have good travel insurance in place if you are going on holiday. If you would like to get some quotations please visit our dedicated travel page here.


Welders are primarily involved in the cutting, shaping and joining of sheet and tube metal. They can be employed in a wide range of industries from manufacturing, construction and even offshore oil and gas industries. A welder needs to have a high concentration ability in order to ensure their own personal safety when using welding equipment, to be constantly vigilant to any hazards that are presenting from the work and so that the finished product meets strict safety guidelines.
