Business insurance for the security industry

Working in security means working closely with members of the public, so you need an insurance policy that’s there if someone makes a claim against you. Simply Business offers insurance for self-employed door supervisors and security guards as well as security companies. We also cover those who set up security fittings such as alarm installers and CCTV installers. You can get your all-important public liability cover and then add any other business insurance you need to create a tailored policy.

Building your policy

Most security companies want the back-up of a good public liability insurance policy, which can protect you if someone makes a claim against you for injury or damage to their property. The claimant could be a client, a passerby, or anyone else you come into contact with in the course of your work. Because compensation payments can be very high, we offer between £1 million and £10 million of cover.

You can build the policy your security company needs by adding additional covers to your policy too. You can cover your business premises with a buildings insurance policy, and you can take out employers’ liability cover, which is compulsory for most businesses that employ staff.
