Companies in the manufacturing, wholesaling or distribution sector have specialist insurance requirements that need the attention of an expert. In addition to the risks associated with running a production line, manufacturers may be concerned with the efficacy of their products as well as their potential to cause harm or injury.
Depending on the nature of the manufacturing processes involved, there will almost certainly be a higher than average Health & Safety exposure, and there will always be the risk of theft both from the premises and while in transit.
If you manufacture, alter or install goods that are then sold to the public, you could potentially face manufacturing liability lawsuits. Should your goods cause bodily injury or property damage to others, you could also face substantial legal fees if you are sued as a result.
If you’re an employer, you’re legally required to take out cover for your employees should they suffer an accident such as a slip, trip or fall when working with high shelving units, heavy boxes or forklifts. What’s more, if your business is part of a large supply chain, it pays to protect any business or computer equipment you use to manage electronic records and data in case your systems fail.
So, if your business operates in what may be a hazardous environment, the right cover can protect you, your workforce and your business from the specific risks associated with running a production line. We can arrange comprehensive insurance for all types of manufacturers, woodworkers and processing companies – from paint makers and distributors to warehousing businesses.
