Most fabricating and manufacturing businesses have a Business Owner’s Policy (BOP). It helps improve the quality of your insurance coverage by protecting your manufacturing business like a homeowners policy protects your home.
By combining three coverages in one, a BOP helps save you money on insurance rates, while safeguarding the manufacturing business you’ve worked so hard to build. Comprehensive manufacturer’s insurance is typically made up of:
General Liability insurance, which helps cover lawsuits resulting from an injury or property damage caused by your business. For example, say a customer gets injured by a machine in your shop. General liability can help cover the associated medical costs. This coverage even helps cover claims alleging slander and libel. However, it does not help cover claims tied to the professional services you provide. For those, you’d need professional liability coverage.
Commercial Property insurance to help protect your place of business and the tools you use, such as plastics, injectors and molds. Commercial property insurance can help protect these tools whether you own them or lease them.
Business Income insurance, which helps cover your lost income if you can’t run your manufacturing business due to covered property damage or loss, like a fire or storm.
Workers’ Compensation Insurance
Apart from manufacturer’s insurance, most states require workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ comp helps provide benefits to employees for a work-related injury or illness. Some of these benefits include paying:
- The costs of medical care
- Wages from lost work time
If your employee’s family sues you for their injury or illness, this coverage can also help cover your related legal fees
Commercial Auto Insurance
Do you or your employees use personal vehicles to:
- Meet customers?
- Attend business conferences?
- Pick up tools and supplies?
If you do, you may want to consider commercial auto insurance. A business auto policy can help provide coverage that’s not usually included in a personal auto policy. This can help cover you or an employee if there’s an accident involving an owned vehicle that’s used for work.
