Plastics Manufacturers“Plastics” was the one-word advice once given to a famous graduate, and it’s still good advice today: the plastic products manufacturing industry accounts for more than $300 billion in revenue and employs nearly a million workers, according to SPI, the Plastics Industry Trade Association.
It’s also an industry that must be concerned that certain risks could slow—or halt—that revenue. At Hanover Risk Solutions, we have focused programs that zero in on whatever most concerns you: the health and safety of workers, electrical fire prevention, or keeping your business going when weather threatens to slow it down.
Keeping workers safe when working with complex manufacturing machinery is only one of the concerns that plastic products manufacturers face—but it’s hard to overstate how important it is. Hanover Risk Solutions can help.
