OPSWA Entrepreneurial Memberships

The OPSWA Entrepreneurial Membership is a great new way to offer security and peace of mind to you and your clients. OPSWA PSWs come with photo ID and have a clear security clearance.  Most importantly it protects your company from the inevitable errors and possible damages that may arise.

Examples of where Commercial General Liability can protect you are (and which can result in litigation are):

  • An employee accidentally causes a fire or other property damage while preparing meals for your client

  • You or an employee leave your/their purse on the ground and a patient or other person trips over it an injures themselves


Examples of where Errors & Omissions Insurance can protect your company (and result in possible court costs)                     

Injury resulting from activities of daily living such as:

  • transfers

  • bathing

  • behaviours


For the Small Business Personal Support Worker it is important that the PSWs you hire carry Errors & Omissions Insurance in case examples like the following occur.

  • A staff member that you hired causes injury to a client and results in litigation and court costs – In this case their E&O Insurance will cover their costs & your CGL will cover yours in the event that you were both sued
