Food ManufacturersIgnoring risk can result in shutdown or loss of revenue for any business, and food manufacturers are no exception: the public exposure of foodborne illnesses originating in your plant; a weather event that disrupts your supply chain; or the steady erosion of profits from workers’ comp claims; all can eat away at the bottom line.
At Hanover Risk Solutions, we’ve pinpointed those common exposures and marshaled solutions to help mitigate risk.
For most food processing businesses, employee injuries are their most common and most costly type of insurance claim. These Workers’ Compensation claims are usually led by musculoskeletal strains from manual material handling or repetitive motion, machinery-related claims such as amputations and caught-in injuries, and slips/falls from wet walking surfaces.
