What is manufacturing insurance?
Manufacturing Insurance refers to a diverse range of insurance solutions designed for companies involved in the manufacture of products.
Typically a package of manufacturer’s insurance will involve some combination of the following types of coverage:
- Employer’s liability
- Product liability
- Property Insurance
- Plant and machinery insurance
- Professional Indemnity
- Commercial vehicles insurance
Who needs manufacturing insurance?
All levels of manufacturer will require some form of insurance from small crafters to large-scale heavy equipment factories.
Anybody involved in creating a product is open to being claimed against if their product causes harm, loss or injury.
What does manufacturing insurance cover?
As an employer, you must have employer’s liability insurance to cover the risk which may arise from injury in the workplace. There are very few employers in the UK who are exempt from this legal requirement.
As a business making a product, you remain liable for loss, harm or damage caused by that product if it contains faulty components, has production flaws that render it not fit for use or dangerous or if your product is not properly labelled to reduce consumer risk.
As a manufacturer, your business will also be open to many additional risks that can be covered under a package of manufacturer’s insurance. These might include:
- Product recalls
- Intellectual property disputes such as trademark or copyright breaches
- Data breaches and cyber-risks
- Commercial vehicles
- Employment practices liability
