Insurance for your Men’s Shed
Making sure you have adequate safety rules in your Shed and that all your equipment is operating optimally is vital for a healthy Shed but it is also important that all Sheds have adequate insurance. You may require a range of insurances to protect the organisation and its volunteers. Insurance can provide a level of protection for public liability, personal accident, financial losses to committee members or officers and/or loss of income for volunteers as a result of an injury.
These are insurance providers we know have good policies for sheds:
- Australian Men’s Sheds Association (AMSA)
- Jobs Australia
