Other Categories of Business Insurance for Salons

If you employ staff, whether they’re casual, temporary, or permanent employees, it is a legal responsibility to take out employers liability insurance.

The products and treatments you provide could be harmful to your clients if carried out incorrectly or if your client suffers an allergic reaction. As long as salon staff have a minimum of two years’ experience or an experienced member of staff supervises them, product liability insurance will help protect you in the event of a claim. We are also unfortunately unable to provide quotations to businesses located in Northern Ireland.

Your salon premises are a vital element of your business – without them it would be challenging for your business to operate – so you also need buildings insurance cover, plus protection for your valuable equipment. 

Salon Public Liability Insurance

No two salons are the same, but you all have one thing in common. You have a duty of care to everybody that enters your premises, and for this reason public liability cover is one of the key components of your insurance policy.

Public liability insurance protects you if a customer, supplier, or member of the public suffers illness or injury, or damage to their property, as a result of your negligence. Having public liability insurance for your salon will cover the cost of a claim, plus any associated legal costs.

I’ve been delighted by how smei took time to understand my many salons. We have quotes done in the good old fashioned way and they are always helpful and willing to go that extra mile. This is exactly the type of company we like to use as we are very busy looking after all of our salons. I would highly refer people to use SME Insurance.
