Am I under any obligation to the public/my customers?
Yes! You owe it to your
customers to make the finest product possible. The public is extremely
product-conscious, so you should tell your clientele about any measures they can
take to prevent any unlikely accident even if by misuse (such as a child
swinging on a bird bath bowl). Don't take any shortcuts.
For instance, tell customers
that there is a possibility that if a child grabs the edge of a
bowl of a bird bath, it could cause the bird bath to topple and
cause injury. Further advise customers that the installation of a bird
bath or fountain should include anchoring the pedestal to the ground and
permanently attaching the bowl and anything inside it to the top of the
pedestal. Even statuary should be permanently attached to whatever it is placed upon.
Since Southern Standard
has no way of controlling how your final products are eventually
used, it disclaims all liability for incidental and consequential damages
that might arise from your products. If you are concerned
about possible misuse of your products, product liability insurance is
available from a number of insurers as protection for you. In any business, obtaining solid insurance coverage is a sensible decision.
