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.

They also slow the production line and raise an important concern: how to keep them from happening again. Learning the basics of how machines can injure workers and how to protect them is key. Hanover can help.
