The company would set the policy on whether they would cover that situation. They have no obligation under MS law to cover that, since it would be your responsibility to adequately secure your tools at the end of the day.

    You can always ask. I have a sneaking suspicion that your employment agreement requires you to maintain insurance on your tools. If the company doesn't pay, then you can quit and sue for the value of your tools.
