Owning a business means considering all the details that keep it afloat. A thriving company needs more than just employees. It needs the landscapers that maintain the property. The janitors that keep the office clean and sanitary. And the security team that promotes safety measures.
More often than not, these people are contractors for another company. It’s crucial to determine whether that company has general liability insurance. You could be held legally and financially responsible for any injury or damage uninsured contractors cause.
As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for.” When you use vendors with general liability insurance, you invest in companies that prioritize safety, promote continued training, and hold themselves accountable.
But don’t take a company representative’s word at face value. A verbal confirmation will do no good in the case of injury or damage. Be sure to request a certificate of insurance. SFM Services has over $2 million dollars in general liability coverage, and we’ll gladly show you proof of it.
