24 Jun Does Your Miami Vending Service Have Proper Liability Coverage?
When choosing a Miami vending and refreshment service, it’s important to know that the company has sufficient insurance to cover any liabilities that could occur in the break room. The vending industry has an outstanding record for food safety and worker safety. Nevertheless, accidents can happen, and a reputable service provider will have the necessary insurance so that the customer will incur no liabilities concerning the vending service.
Bettoli Vending carries the proper business insurance, which includes business liability, vehicle coverage and workers compensation coverage. The company also conducts thorough background checks for all of its employees so customers can be certain that their break room will be serviced by trustworthy and competent professionals.
Vending food is inspected before the service professionals deliver it to Miami break rooms. Bettoli Vending service personnel are trained in safe handling procedures and in cleaning the machines.
Vending machines in Miami are manufactured according to industry specifications that include many safety features. In more than a hundred years, there have been very few accidents caused by vending machines. But accidents can happen.
General liability insurance ensures that any damages that could occur in delivering vending service will be covered.
Several years ago, there was a fatal accident in which someone was electrocuted after a vending machine power plug had a broken grounding pin. That accident resulted in the call for a ground fault circuit interrupter for all new vending machines. Bettoli Vending uses ground fault circuit interrupters in every machine it fixes, even if it is not required because of the machine’s age.
Vending service companies carry between $1 million and $5 million in liability coverage.
Vehicle insurance is also important. A reputable vending company will be willing to provide a customer information about vehicle insurance. Vehicle coverage should be no less than $1 million.
The most important element for any service company is the employees. Bettoli Vending requires a level 2 background check for every employee. This is one of the requirements of the Jessica Lunsford Act, commonly known as Jessica’s Law. Companies are required to conduct level 2 background checks to gain access to schools.
Level 1 and level 2 background checks are terms used in Florida to convey the method of the criminal history record check and the extent of the data searched. Level 1 and level 2 are terms that pertain only to Florida and are not used by the FBI or other states.
Level 1 refers to a state only, name-based check AND an employment history check.
Level 2 refers to a state and national fingerprint based check and consideration of disqualifying offenses. Level 2 applies to those employees designated by law as holding positions of responsibility or trust. Section 435.04, F.S. of Florida state law mandates level 2 security background investigations be conducted on employees, defined as individuals required by law to be fingerprinted pursuant to Chapter 435, F.S.
Both the state and national criminal history databases can be searched for arrests, warrants, and other information pertaining to an individual.
The management of the break room is important to a company’s well-being. Professional vending and refreshment service providers carry sufficient business insurance and have employees that have undergone extensive background checks in addition to professional training.
