What Insurance Do Manufacturers Need?

The kind of insurance you need will vary depending on the type of manufacturing you do as well as the structure of your business. The following are some of the most common forms of insurance for the industry:

When Will You Need...

General Liability

You'll need this when...

As soon as possible. General Liability offers protection for the business which would otherwise go uncovered.

For Example...

If you have employees working in your space, and someone who does not work for you is injured by a machine, General Liability Insurance would provide coverage for any medical bills and legal fees in case of any legal recourse.

Workers Compensation

You'll need this when...

If your state requires you to have a Workers Compensation policy, you will need to have one as soon as you open the business, even if you are not employing anyone but yourself.

If your state does not require you to have a Workers Compensation policy for the business, it is a great idea to get one as soon as you hire your first employee. A lawsuit from a work-related injury could result in the business shutting down.

For Example...

If an employee is working in your warehouse and they are injured by a piece of machinery, your Workers Compensation policy would pay for all medical bills as well as any lost time for the employee. It would also prevent the employee from suing you later.

Inland Marine

You'll need this when...

Although Inland Marine Insurance is fairly limited, it is extremely valuable for businesses that rely heavily on the value of their produced goods. Even one accident that results in lost or damaged goods could be costly to a business.

For Example…

If a truck carrying your manufactured products tips over and spills the product on a busy highway, chances are the entire load could be lost. In many cases, this could be tens of thousands of dollars worth, if not more. Inland Marine Insurance covers this type of situation.

Commercial Property

You'll need this when...

Any business that owns property necessary to make the business more efficient should purchase Commercial Property Insurance.

For Example…

If a sign used to direct customers toward your business is vandalized, this insurance will cover the cost of replacement or repair, as long as the sign is covered under the policy. If the sign’s vandalism results in a loss of business, you may receive coverage for the income loss.

How Much Does Insurance Cost?

The type of insurance you purchase will depend on your individual needs as well as location, size of business, claim history, and more, there is no way to determine what your exact policy will cost you.
