Insure a brighter future

Insurance is vital to protect your business but not all policies are created equal. The team at NHBF explains how to choose the right insurance

Insurance may not be the most exciting topic, but it’s a crucial part of protecting your business, employees, and clients. NHBF provides essential services to help ensure the safe running of your business, including public liability insurance.

Public liability insurance is a necessity for any business, covering the cost of claims made by clients or the public for incidents related to your business activities.

This insurance protects you in the event of physical harm or property damage suffered by a member of the public at your salon or barbershop, or as a result of your business activities.

Emotional stress caused by trips, spills, and accidents can also be included in this coverage.

Treatment liability cover

It’s important to note that treatment liability coverage is often not included in public liability insurance policies. Therefore, it’s essential to ensure you have the right coverage to avoid paying out of your pocket.

NHBF recognises these challenging times and has spent time researching the market to ensure members have access to the best insurance suited to the industry’s specific needs. NHBF’s partnership with Jensten Insurance Brokers provides specialised public liability insurance for salons and barbershops, offering reliable and effective protection for when accidents happen.

NHBF offers a comprehensive range of services to protect your business while you focus on your clients.
