What is Janitorial and Cleaning Workers' Compensation Insurance?

In the bustling environment of janitorial and cleaning companies, unexpected incidents can occur. Your employees may face the following risks:

  • Slip and fall accidents on wet surfaces.
  • Damage from harsh cleaning chemicals.
  • Injuries from repetitive tasks, such as lifting or bending.
  • Cuts and wounds from handling sharp objects or broken glass.
  • Burns from using hot water or cleaning equipment.
  • Respiratory problems from inhaling dust or cleaning fumes.

In the unfortunate event of an employee getting injured, a workers' compensation insurance policy covers medical expenses, lost wages, and disability benefits.

Employees' Compensation Insurance Benefits

The work comp coverage offers:

  • Medical assistance for the employee's injury or illness.
  • Vocational rehabilitation to aid the worker in recovering and smoothly reintegrating into the workplace.
  • Disability benefits if the employee cannot resume work following the injury.
  • Death benefits for the surviving family in case of an employee fatality.
  • Employer accountability in situations involving potential negligence.
  • Legal expenses if the claim is contested or an employee files a lawsuit seeking damages.

This financial support serves as a safety net, replacing lost wages during recovery, enabling employees to focus on healing without financial worries. Workers' compensation insurance goes beyond fulfilling legal requirements—it shows your employees that their well-being is a priority.

How Much Does Workers' Compensation Insurance for Janitorial and Cleaning Companies Cost?

The cost of workers' compensation insurance coverage depends on the size of the business, the company payroll, and the business's past coverage and claims history.

Within the industry, rates might differ depending on your company’s circumstances:

  • Companies that specialize in cleaning hazardous materials, such as biohazards or chemicals, may experience higher workers' compensation insurance costs.
  • Companies offering cleaning services during the night or in high-security environments (e.g., government buildings, data centers) may face higher costs.
  • Janitorial companies utilizing heavy equipment like industrial floor cleaners or high-pressure steamers might face higher insurance premiums.
  • Companies servicing high-traffic areas, such as shopping malls may face higher premiums due to the likelihood of slip-and-fall accidents.

Workers' compensation premiums are calculated based on the type of work employees perform. Some businesses have different functions performed by different employees, while others have just a few people who wear many hats. These roles are described using work class codes. It’s important to classify employees accurately - based on what they spend most of their time doing - because this could dramatically alter your premium.

Note: If your janitorial business works with subcontractors, ensure they have their own workers' compensation insurance or are covered under your policy to maintain compliance and coverage.

Is Workers' Comp Insurance a Legal Requirement for Janitorial and Cleaning Companies?

For janitorial and cleaning companies, workers' compensation insurance is a wise decision and a legal obligation in numerous U.S. states. Failing to have this insurance coverage can result in substantial fines and penalties. If your cleaning company operates in multiple states or your employees occasionally work out-of-state, you must obtain insurance that complies with the laws of each state where your employees are located.


How to Obtain a Workers' Compensation Insurance Quote for Your Janitorial and Cleaning Company

Securing the right workers' compensation insurance for your janitorial and cleaning company is essential. Follow this step-by-step guide to get a tailored insurance quote:

Step 1: Understanding Workers' Compensation Insurance

Workers' compensation insurance is crucial for providing wage replacement and medical benefits to your employees in case of work-related injuries or accidents, such as slips, falls, or strains i.e. workers’ compensation claims. Given the nature of the janitorial and cleaning industry, where employees may face various risks while performing their duties, having comprehensive workers' compensation coverage is vital.

Step 2: Assessing Your Business Needs

Before contacting insurance agencies, take some time to evaluate your janitorial and cleaning company's specific requirements.

  • Categorize your staff based on classification codes.
  • Compute the overall employee count and compute the payroll. If preferred, you can choose to be exempted from coverage.
  • Recognize the typical hazards your workers face during cleaning across different areas and while operating cleaning machinery.
  • Take into account any employee positions with specific risk patterns, like managing dangerous materials or working at elevated levels.

Providing this data will assist insurance agencies in giving you a tailored quotation.

Step 3: Complying with State Laws

Each U.S. state has its own workers' compensation regulations. Familiarize yourself with your state's specific requirements and any exemptions for janitorial and cleaning companies.
Remember that if your cleaning company operates in multiple states or your employees work temporarily out-of-state, you'll need to purchase insurance according to each state's laws.

Step 4: Reaching Out to Insurance Agencies

Contact reputable insurance agencies, preferably independent ones, with expertise in workers' compensation insurance for small businesses like yours.

Share the detailed information you've gathered, including:

  • Your Federal ID Number (or Social Security Number for sole proprietors).
  • Details of previous workers' comp insurance policy or information about past coverage or claims.
  • Specific roles and risks associated with your janitorial and cleaning services.
  • Compliance with your state's legal requirements.

Step 5: Comparing Quotes

Once you receive quotes from different insurance carriers, compare them carefully to make an informed decision. While cost is significant, consider other crucial factors such as the extent of coverage, customer service, and the claims process.

Step 6: Selecting Your Coverage

After a thorough comparison, choose the workers' compensation insurance policy that offers comprehensive coverage at a fair price. Obtaining workers' compensation insurance fulfills a legal obligation and demonstrates your commitment to your employees' well-being and safety.
