If you have any staff, employers’ liability insurance is usually a legal requirement. This insurance covers claims made by an employee for injury or illness caused by their work.
Other covers you can choose to add to your locksmith insurance policy include business buildings insurance and business contents insurance if you have business premises, and business legal protection insurance to cover your legal fees if your locksmith business faces something like an employment tribunal or a tax investigation.
