Working in the mining industry exposes both your business and personal assets at risk. Further, depending on the nature of your business, you may be required to have the correct insurances in place to operate. As business insurance brokers, we will use our extensive insurer networks to help you find the most appropriate cover for your needs and budget, as well as work on your behalf to make claims when required.
We regularly partner with mining contractors to help them place both traditional and alternative insurance solutions. Don’t be left uninsured or pay too much for your insurance premiums. Contact us to see how we can help.
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. Mining Contractors Insurance often consists of two main insurance policies: Professional Indemnity Insurance and Public Liability Insurance. Depending on the size and nature of your business, you may or may not need both. 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.
Public Liability Insurance
When it comes to Mining Contractors 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.
An example of such a liability insurance claim is where a customer may slip and fall on your premises, consequently suing you for breaching your duty of care - your insurance should then be able to help cover the potential costs associated with this.
Depending on the nature, risks and needs of your business, we can tailor your Mining Contractors Insurance policy to cover you on items such as:
