What insurance do beauty therapists need?
Public liability insurance
The most popular cover for many businesses, public liability insurance offers financial compensation in the event that a client, or any other non-employee, takes legal action against you for injury or property damage caused by your work.
Contents and equipment cover
Salon furniture isn't cheap, and electrical equipment that's being moved around and used day in, day out is likely to get damaged or broken at some point. A no-brainer for any business with specialised equipment, contents and equipment insurance covers the cost to repair or replace accidentally damaged contents and equipment.
Employers liability insurance
Personal accident cover
If you have employees, this will pay compensation if they suffer an accident resulting in loss of sight, hearing, speech or a limb, death or leaving them disabled and permanently unable to work.
You may be surprised to see this one on the list, but cyber insurance is relevant to any business that stores personally identifiable information.
As a beauty business, you'll likely store information about your clients in your database, such as names, email address and even birth dates. This could make you the target of data theft, or result in someone accidentally breaching GDPR legislation by sending out a company email to people who haven't officially opted in to receive them.
