THE IMPORTANCE OF INSURANCE: GET THE RIGHT COVER FOR YOU
Your clients entrust you with their wellbeing and safety while they are in your care. It is your responsibility to ensure adequate preparation and insurance. Critical to your professional operations is public liability and professional indemnity insurance, an essential part of good risk management for you and your business. Providing protection in the case of claims due to an accident or injury will give you confidence to work knowing that you are prepared.
Further to this, it is a requirement of most employers, including gyms and studios, to provide your own insurance. It is also a prerequisite for working outdoors and obtaining council permits. In some cases, you may be covered by your employer’s insurance policy. If you’re not, then it is essential that you arrange adequate insurance to cover your requirements.
