What could go wrong running a Workshop?

When manufacturing products, anything can go wrong. From the ingredients/recipe, to the design and the method. Once those products are no longer in your possession, anything can happen.

So, when it comes to teaching workshops, the same problems can and will occur. However, that risk increases. You’re now teaching someone all the ins and outs of the process. During, if you somehow misguide your student, or miss an important step, they could carry it on into their own small business

Should a claim and/or incident occur with their products, they will be looking to you for compensation for their financial loss

Implications of Cancelling your Product Liability OR Professional Indemnity Cover.

Products Liability is an occurrence-based wording. This means, the insurance needs to be in place at the time the incident/injury/damage occurred for there to be a valid claim.

Professional Indemnity Insurance is a Claims Made wording. This means an insurance policy needs to be in place at the time you provide the service and at the time of the claim and/or incident in order for your interest to be protected.

If you cancel your insurance today and an incident is notified and/or occurs tomorrow for a product or service you provided last week, you will not be covered. Read more on this here.
