What is Beautician’s Liability Insurance?

There are three main parts to be aware of when buying beautician’s liability insurance; public liability, products liability and professional treatments cover. We’ll explain each of these in a little more detail below.

What is public liability for beauticians?

Public liability protects you from claims which arise through negligence on your part during the course of you work. For example, you may have left cables in a hazardous location where someone might trip, if a member of public injures themselves or has the property damaged because of this, they may try to claim damages from you. This insurance would cover you legal defense along with their compensation should they win the case.

What is products liability insurance for beauticians?

Products liability cover will insure you in the event a product you use or sell to clients causes a member of the public to suffer an injury or have their property damage. In these instances they may try and claim compensation from you, even if the product is not made by you. It’s important to therefore cover yourself just in case. Again, product liability for beauticians covers your legal defenses and any damages you have to pay to the claimant if they win the case.

What is professional treatment cover?

Professional treatment cover is a form of professional indemnity cover especially for beauty therapists. It ensures that if a client isn’t satisfied with advice you have given them regarding their treatments an takes you to court, your legal costs and awards claimed by the client if they win the case are covered up to £5 million. We do require you to carry out treatments as the manufacturer has advised for this aspect of the cover to be valid.

Can I pay in instalments?

If you would prefer to spread the cost of your policy, you may have the option of setting up a direct debit to pay your premium in equal monthly instalments through our preferred provider, Premium Credit Limited (PCL). Please note that this is only available on our salon policies and not to individuals.

To find out more about PCL and direct debit payments, select direct debit.
