The resources and mining industries in Australia is fast gaining momentum after a slow few years and we are starting to see some strong signs of continued growth.
This industry can be very demanding and risky, and the stakes are always high to perform which put your industry at the high end of the risk spectrum. With such high demands on performance, errors of judgment can happen from time to time.
We understand the risks that are involved in this industry, especially for the many contractors and sub-contractors. Exposures may include property damage, the complexities of dry and wet plant hire as well as the general liability risks associated with trades working on mine sites.
Therefore, insurance for mining contractors plays an important part of the contractor’s and sub-contractors financial and liability risk management process. It does not matter if you are an engineer, machine owner/operator, or one of the many trades contractors – making sure you have the right insurance is extremely vital.
At East West Insurance Brokers, we have provided cover for many contractors such as electricians, maintenance, diesel fitters, riggers, scaffolders and boilermakers/welders, carpenters, mechanical operators, plant & machinery equipment owners and operators, labourer hire, explosive technicians, engineers and more.
While no one can predict or foresee when things could go wrong, we can certainly assist you in having the right insurance protection for your business and your employees. One of the many types of insurance covers we can provide for the self-employed contractors’ peace of mind is accident and sickness insurance. This generally covers you personally for loss of income in the event you are unable to work due to an illness or accident.
We have a team of specialist brokers that are well skilled in identifying your real risks and are able to advise fit-for-purpose solutions tailored for your specific needs.
