Running a manufacturing business is a large undertaking with a great deal of commercial exposure. From employee safety to equipment maintenance and ensuring the integrity of your product after shipping, there’s a lot to account for. The right insurance plan can protect you against those risks and more, but manufacturers often have more complex insurance needs than businesses in many other industries. That’s why it’s important to discuss your options with a qualified professional that can ensure your coverage will meet the unique needs of your operation.
A Business Owner's Policy is a combination of business liability insurance and business property insurance. A BOP generally protects business owners from liabilities, property damage, perils, and business interruptions. Additional coverage can include spoilage of merchandise, data breaches, forgeries, particular crimes, vehicle coverage, and more.
Commercial general liability typically provides coverage in case an injury or damage takes place on a business' property or while a business is operating. For instance, a customer could slip on the floor of your property, or an employee working at someone's home can slip and cause damage.
Workers' compensation provides monetary and medical benefits to workers who get injured or disabled during the course of employment. Typically, if an injured employee accepts worker's compensation, they cannot sue the employer.
Premises liability insurance commonly protects you from accidents that occur on your company's premises, causing bodily injuries or property damage. Premises can be comprised of, but are not limited to, your office space, garden in front of your workplace, and parking lot. Note: If you have a General Liability policy, then you already have premises liability coverage!
