Many businesses are preparing to have their annual company picnic.  These are great events to gather team members and families together to celebrate, bond and have fun.  Like other company social events, there are a number of actions to consider in order to minimize risks.  Your business insurance policy may cover some of the risk associated with these events, but it is a good idea to have us review the issues and help you understand how best to manage your risk.

Many businesses are preparing to have their annual company picnic.  These are great events to gather team members and families together to celebrate, bond and have fun.  Like other company social events, there are a number of actions to consider in order to minimize risks.  Your business insurance policy may cover some of the risk associated with these events, but it is a good idea to have us review the issues and help you understand how best to manage your risk.

Here are a few questions that may help you understand your risk:

  • Is the event mandatory? We recommend that you make these events voluntary.  If the event is mandatory, your business could be held strictly liable.
  • Where are you holding the event? It is best to use a third-party location to avoid potential liability.
  • Are you serving alcohol? Always hire a third party to manage the alcohol service and require them to have appropriate liability insurance.
  • Is there a workers’ compensation exposure? Regardless if the event is mandatory or not, if an employee is injured it is likely to be a workers’ compensation claim.

If you are not currently a Leap / Carpenter /Kemps customer, we invite you to talk to one of your many neighbors who are, to see if it might be time for you to change the way that you buy insurance. Let us provide you with a free analysis of your insurance coverage to help you determine if you have the right policies at the right cost. We are here to help!
