As a nail technician, your work involves grooming and improving the appearance of a person’s fingernails and toenails. This can include providing manicures, pedicures, nail shaping, applying synthetic nails and nail polish for a client.


If you are self-employed working from home, visit clients to provide your services, or work in a salon, there is always the risk that of something going wrong and an accident occurring. You could, for example, cause physical harm to a person’s hands or feet, spill nail polish or acetate on someone’s clothes or furniture, or even have a situation where a client slips or falls on your equipment and is injured.


This is why it is vital to have the appropriate public liability insurance in place to protect yourself against legal claims for damages when the unexpected occurs. Although you may think the chances of causing damage or injury to someone is unlikely in your profession, if something does go wrong it could result in a significant financial loss that could bankrupt your business, and in the worst of cases, lead to a large personal financial loss.
