Our Excalibur Insurance Brokers might ask a lot of questions – for good reason.
Given the wide variety of manufacturing industries, there are unique risks and exposures. Insurance for Manufacturing businesses is important as it acts as a form of risk transfer.
An effective risk management strategy for manufacturing businesses includes acknowledging the risks your company may face. For each risk, once identified, there should be a method established for measuring the risk level and type of risk (financial, regulator, client-related, etc). In the Manufacturing industry, this may include product, contractual, and reputational risk. Each of these can be adequately managed with proper risk management procedures and business insurance coverage.
This list is not exhaustive however, there are a few areas of concern you may want to pay special attention to when reviewing your coverage as a manufacturer.
- Product Risk
This is the risk that a product contains a defect or was not produced to standards. It may later result in a liability event if the faulty product should cause bodily injury or property damage, to a distributor or even a consumer.To manage this risk, automation and equipment should be regularly maintained and looked after to ensure reduced faults. Standards of production should be upheld, and employees should be trained effectively to reduce potential errors.
- Contractual Risk
This covers the agreements between your business and a third party, such as a distributor or a retail business, for your business to produce and sell an agreed-upon quantity of your product. Failure to meet this deadline may result in reputational harm and a client could refuse to work with you later.Contracts should be effectively communicated, staff should be trained and up to date on priorities, and your business should avoid taking on tasks that are beyond its capacity to handle or clients that may have conflicting expectations.
