BBC Fake Britain
The BBC consumer program Fake Britain has highlighted the issue of firework insurance. In this case, the individual concerned had forged insurance documents which is illegal.
In our blog we brought to your attention the current problems that could occur regarding firework insurance. Firework insurance is extremely expensive and hence individuals and companies may try to cut corners. The person concerned in the program was Jason Edgecombe who has since set up trading as Fire Master Fireworks. The results of his case are featured on this web page – https://www.tutorcare.co.uk/blog/bristol-employer-jailed-for-health-and-safety-breach-in-fireworks-accident-91.html
Whilst this concerns professional firework displays, you should ensure that your supplier of consumer fireworks has their own products liability insurance.
