Risk management for manufacturers: Proactive risk mitigation

A few suggestions to evaluate and mitigate exposure to a products liability claim

This is the second column in a three-part series, aimed at helping manufacturing companies avoid litigation. In Part One, we recommended that companies regularly review their existing insurance policies and programs, with an eye toward previous issues as well as toward future growth and development.

We offer a few suggestions for consideration, which are part and parcel of the exposure evaluation described in our previous column.
