Mining Contractors

Insurance for mining contractors is such an important part of a contractor’s safety plan at work. It doesn’t matter if you’re an engineer, machine operator, or labourer – every role matters at East West Insurance Brokers.

Mining is a dangerous and broad market, so comes with many risks for all involved, both contractors and sub-contractors who work above and below the ground. At East West Insurance Brokers, we provide cover for above ground professions, such as; electricians, carpenters, mechanical operators, plant & machinery equipment operators, labourers, explosive technicians, engineers and more. Conversely, we can assist with below ground operators, such as; labourers, maintenance, diesel fitters, riggers, scaffolders and boilermakers/welders, to name just a few.
