What is 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. 

Managing a business in the mining industry exposes you, your colleagues and company to several risks. Whether it be an error made by a manager or an injured worker, one unfortunate event could result in phenomenal legal, financial and personal consequences. 

Basically, Mining Contractors Insurance provides you with the protection you need should things turn for the worse. We will work with both you and the insurer to create a tailored policy that protects you from risks associated with your particular business. 

Professional Indemnity Insurance

Professional Indemnity Insurance protects your mining-related 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.

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