If customers, suppliers, or employees visit your home business, you'll want to take all reasonable steps to make sure their visits are safe ones.
Separating Business and Personal Space
Because your home business shares space in a home, your business visitors may not think to look for hazards that are a part of the home, but are not usually encountered in a business. Thus, if possible, you should try to keep your visitors out of the personal areas of the house where the belongings of family members may create hazards (such as the skateboard at the bottom of the steps). Likewise, aggressive dogs or other animals should be kept away from visitors.
Regardless of how hard you try to keep your business area safe for visitors, you should always have adequate liability coverage.
