As you are no doubt aware, Florida business insurance policies and premiums are determined by the risks associated with unique aspects of a particular business. What are some ways that you can minimize the risks to you as the business owner?
There are some basic things you can do:
• Keep up with your building maintenance. A claim on your policy can be compromised if it is found that sloppy maintenance contributed to damages.
• Service your machinery and equipment regularly. Equipment breakdown coverage may be compromised if you don’t.
• Maintain a safe working environment. Accidents do happen, but while you may have workers’ compensation insurance and other liability coverage in place, prevention is always preferable.
• Check for exclusions on your existing Florida business insurance policy and take out extra coverage for risks that apply to your business but that aren’t covered under a standard policy.
If you have additional, specific risks that are a part of your business, you will need to ensure that you have appropriate Florida business insurance coverage in place, as opposed to a standard or basic policy that may not fully cover your operation.
