Insuring Your Workforce

Your workforce is one of your key assets, helping with everything from office support to the packaging and moving of products. Many workers in the manufacturing and distributing industries face special risks due to the nature of their work. Some run heavy-duty equipment that can expose them to potential injury, while others regularly drive a commercial vehicle, can be exposed to toxic substances, or work on a shop floor where slips, trips and falls are an ongoing risk.

From keeping your work floor free of debris to providing ergonomic support to prevent repetitive stress, there are many things you can do to help protect your workers. Another vital risk management step is to provide your workforce with workers compensation to ensure that your business is covered for on-the-job injury claims.

Insuring Your Business and Products

Whereas heavy equipment, moving machinery and commercial vehicles can cause injury to workers, the products you manufacture can put you at risk for liability claims from consumers. It is important to consider product liability coverage if you manufacture edible products, pharmaceuticals, hazardous chemicals, and even packaging products for other manufacturers.

Additional types of coverage that can provide significant benefits to our manufacturing and distributing clients include:

  • Coverage for lost income in the event of a catastrophic event
  • Coverage for products while in transit to warehousing or retail locations
  • Excess liability or umbrella insurance for unforeseen catastrophic incidents

Insuring Your Equipment and Business Property

Equipment, vehicles and other business property, such as a manufacturing plant or a warehouse, can be at risk of damage from weather, accidents, fire, smoke and more. Consult with a Tidwell agent to obtain quotes and important information about how to protect your business property and equipment investment against damage or loss.

Whether you are simply looking for a liability insurance quote, or you have outgrown your current coverage and need assistance with establishing commercial insurance policies that match your organization’s growth, we can help.
