Owning a supermarket brings with it many highs and lows but hopefully more of the former. You will no doubt have numerous staff to manage with that in itself being a challenge.
After all, good as your staff are, most of them will not have the same commitment as you to many aspects of the operation of your business. You can provide regular training on things like health and safety but, as much as you try, accidents will happen and that could prove problematic for the business.
For instance, should a customer drop and break a bottle of wine on the supermarket floor, this will need to be cleared up and your customers directed away from the area until the floor is dry and safe to walk on. Unfortunately, if the warning signs have been removed too soon and a customer slips on the wet floor and breaks a leg who is going to get blamed and possibly sued? Your business!
This is where you will be glad that you have an excellent Supermarket Insurance policy in place. Such a policy should have an option to include Public Liability Insurance that will provide you with cover should something like the above take place thus negating the business from having to fund any compensation payment and legal costs from their own resources.
Supermarket Insurance could also cover such things as the building, fixtures and fittings, contents and stock should there be the likes of a fire, flood, accidental damage or a burglary. This will provide you, the business owner, with peace of mind in knowing that should the unforeseen happen you have insurance in place to deal with these things as, without comprehensive Supermarket Insurance, the future profitability of the business and your livelihood could be placed at risk.
You are, of course, legally obliged to arrange Employer's Liability Insurance if you have any employees should one or more of them make a claim for damages against you if they, for instance, have an accident. This type of insurance can also be incorporated within a Supermarket Insurance policy.
