Our Happy Clients

“BSR Australia Ltd has worked with Crucial Insurance and its specialist cyber insurance division since 2016. Their approach was to ensure we understood our emerging risks in the digital space so that we understood how insurance could play a very specific role in addressing these exposures. I would highly recommend Crucial Insurance and its specialist cyber team to other businesses who want to properly understand their risks and what insurance solutions can best address these exposures.”

Forms of business insurance

Here are some common forms of insurance we help Emerald businesses with.

Mining Contractors Insurance

Many mining contractors provide essential services to mines including engineering, machining, fabrication, line boring, shutdown maintenance and more. It is crucial that your insurance protection is designed to extend coverage to all these business activities. Mining Contractors Insurance provides you with the protection you need should things turn for the worse. Mining Contractors Insurance often consists of two main insurance policies: Professional Indemnity Insurance and Public Liability Insurance.

Construction Insurance

Construction Insurance provides protection for builders during the period of construction and for your broader business activities as a builder. It is an essential form of protection to ensure your assets and liability are properly insured. A comprehensive Construction and Builders Insurance policy provides protection for assets during the construction period and protects your business against any legal liability claims which arise as a result of the construction project.

Business Insurance

A comprehensive Business Insurance Package policy can protect businesses against unforeseen losses. It provides multiple forms of coverage within one combined policy which saves you time and money.

Public Liability Insurance

Public Liability Insurance can protect you in the case that someone makes a claim against your business due to negligence, or if someone is injured in your premises.

Professional indemnity insurance

Provide advice for a fee? Professional Indemnity Insurance protects your business from claims made by your clients and customers against you as a result of the advice that you provide them.

IT Liability Insurance

IT Liability Insurance is designed to protect you against the numerous risks you may face when you are working as an IT-related professional. The main advantages of a specialist IT Liability Insurance policy is that it combines both Professional Indemnity and Public and Product Liability coverage under the one insurance policy which avoids any gaps in coverage if the two policies are placed with separate insurers.

Cyber Insurance

Cyber Insurance is not an option, but a must for all businesses. As a business, you are open to cyber and spyware attacks that could result in significant losses of profit, breach of privacy regulations and more. The right Cyber Insurance policy can provide you with a safety net against these risks.

Business Interruption Insurance

Business Interruption Insurance helps protect your business against unforeseen circumstances that negatively affect your profitability. This could include property related events such as fire and storm, cyber events, product recalls, machinery breakdown and more.

Alternative Insurance Solutions

We also provide expert advice in the following areas:

- Discretionary Trusts

- Captive Insurance

- Self-Insurance

- Extended Warranty Programs

- Expat Travel Insurance

- IPO Insurance

- D&O Insurance


These are just some examples of ways insurance could protect your business. Contact us to see which policies and solutions could be most beneficial for your situation.
