The Current Struggle with Insurance for Geotechnical Consultants

Geotechnical Consultants are essential to mining and mining-related industries through the consultancy, testing and site investigation services they provide. Any uninsured losses Geotechnical Consultants face may thus result in disastrous legal, financial and emotional consequences, which could be easily avoidable with the right Professional Indemnity Insurance. 

However, a current issue faced by many Australian professionals working in the mining and construction industries is the inability to access Insurance coverage at a suitable price. With a variety of capricious economic factors impacting market sentiment, finding insurers to help protect themselves and their businesses has become a growing challenge for Geotech Consultants.

Our Geotechnical Consultants Insurance product offers quick, affordable and comprehensive insurance coverage that eliminates the usual hassles associated with obtaining insurance. We help our clients overcome the typical hurdles associated with finding mining insurance solutions in the market.

The team at Crucial Insurance were professional, thorough and helpful. Tony took the time to compare my existing policies with other competitive insurances on the market. He recommended options that provided me with the coverage I required and were more cost effective. Thanks for the great service.

Alishia was a pleasure to work with, great on the phone and extremely knowledgable on policies. In fact, this is the reason brokers exist --I could not find a single insurance company, despite hours and hours of searching, with a policy that did what I wanted. Alishia had one in mind within a minute of speaking with me, and not long after, I was covered. Outstanding.

Thank you to Tony and the Crucial Team! Tony designed insurance specific to our business needs and made it easy to understand. We have peace of mind knowing that they are there to support us.

An uninsured loss, whether caused by a manager's oversight or the negligence of an employee, may have far-reaching legal, financial and emotional ramifications. The right insurance offering can give you peace of mind by providing the necessary financial safeguards should events turn for the worse.

How Does Professional Indemnity Insurance Protect Geotech Consultants?

Working as a professional in the mining industry exposes you, your colleagues and your company to an array of business activity risks. 

Professional Indemnity Insurance for Geotech Consultants can protect you against claims made by clients and customers as a result of the advice that you provided them. At Crucial Insurance, our insurance brokerage specialists are trained to communicate with you and your insurer, helping tailor a policy that will perfectly fit against any risks you may face.

Public Liability Insurance policies do not extend to cover claims arising from services provided for a fee. Therefore, it's crucial that you protect your mining-related business with Professional Indemnity Insurance.

  • Professional Indemnity Insurance

    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. If your business provides advice or service for a fee then you will be deemed to be providing a professional service.

    Because Public Liability Insurance coverage does not cover claims stemming from fee-based services, you can secure your consultancy with Professional Indemnity Insurance.


Public Liability Insurance

Public Liability Insurance covers your business in the event there is a claim against you for Personal Injury and/or Property damage arising from your business activities. A Liability Insurance policy will cover you for your legal liability and will also extend to cover your legal defence costs to assist in defending the claim or settling the claim.


  • Workers Compensation

    Workers Compensation is a type of insurance payment that covers employees should they become injured or sick as a result of their work. Workers Compensation Insurance can cover expenses such as medical expenses and wages during the hours they cannot attend work.


  • Corporate Travel Insurance

    Corporate Travel Insurance or Expat Travel Insurance can safeguard your business against the financial damage caused by major accidents, illnesses, and travel delays.


  • Cyber Insurance

    A Cyber Insurance policy is designed to protect your business from a breach of your digital network and the resultant financial loss which can extend to financial losses arising from cyber theft, loss of company profits, fines and penalties payable for breaching privacy regulation laws and losses payable to others for breaching their right to privacy.
