Professional Mining Contractors Insurance

Why is Mining Contractors Insurance important?

For tradies who work in the mining industry, it’s essential that you have a risk management plan in place and organising a targeted insurance package means that you’re protecting yourself financially when things go wrong. Working in the mining industry can involve dangerous work which exposes workers in this sector to range of unique risks and the demanding nature of the work means that you need to protect yourself against injuries, accidents and damage.

If you work as a contractor in the mining sector, at the very least you’ll require public liability insurance – you’ll find it near impossible to obtain employment in the industry without this cover. For most contractors, you’ll also need additional insurance to protect against additional risk exposures. Speak with an insurance broker at All Trades Cover today to help assess your areas of risk.
