The main insurance you will need insurance to cover you for public liability for anyone wandering onto the site and injuring themselves and also cover for the building or buildings Fire Vandalism 

A basic site insurance will cover this 

 

The men working on site or the contractor employing them will have there own and cover for any plant they are leaving on site 

So no need to get involved with that

Depends on your attitude to risk I guess.

Your responsible for securing the site 

and anyone getting injured on YOUR site 

Even if they are trespassing 

For The sake of a few hundred quid per year Its not worth the risk 

Plus if you get a HSE visit 

It will be the first thing they will ask for
