A tradie working on a commercial building locked up his tools before leaving the worksite at the end of the day. The next morning when the site was opened his tools were nowhere to be seen. A double whammy – no tools and potentially a contractual penalty for delaying the work. Luckily, the tradie was insured, the claim was dealt with quickly and he was able to replace his tools in time to avoid all penalties.
